I got this clematis from a Kmart over four years ago. It was less than $2 if you can believe it. I have been growing it next to my clothes line pole hoping that it would climb it. It seems to be repelled by it though, and refuses to grab on. I may move it this year, but before I did that I had to find out if I could replace it if I totally screwed up. Yep, there's a place in the Cities that sells them, so I'm good to go.
This is a picture that I got from the web. It has been too overcast here to get a good picture of them. But they look just like this, blue with a little glow to them, so I didn't think that you would mind. It is blooming right now and will bloom again later this summer, too. Just beautiful. I love clematises.
