Clematis x diversifolia 'Eriostemon' is a very old and still excellent cross between C. integrifolia and C. viticella yet it is not often found in the trade. The plentiful flowers face outward and, though measuring only 3 inches across, make up in number what they lack in width. Their four blunt-tipped sepals are dark purple red with an even darker central bar. The filaments are green with purple anther tips. The dusky bells nod on their stems all summer. Its smaller size makes it useful in smaller gardens and containers. All of our Clematis are two year old plants that are suitable for immediate planting in your garden.

Early summer to late summer.   6 ft.

Dark Red Purple flowers

Sun     Zones 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
An herbaceous, loosely clinging clematis which makes a delightful subject for the mid or front border or a container. We grow these in cages or propped between low shrubs. Prune hard at the end of winter.
