    • I planted this clematis last year and it did flower the first year. It came back this year and has produced many blue flowers. It’s so pretty and so far has held up very well to wind. Would like to plant another one.

    • I bought 5 of these lil beauties, end of season sale, dry and lonely in a near-empty greenhouse. They responded well to TLC and were the first thing up in the spring! Love the climber clematis, but these are the cutest ever. Probably be planning another vignette featuring Stand By Me.

    • I stumbled on this variety at Walters Gardens in their gardens and have been observing it throughout the summer. I can't wait to get my hands on some of these plants.
