A departure from the long, climbing clematis you see on trellises and fences. This non-vining plant brings the outstanding blooms clematis are known for to a whole new area of the garden. It's sure to be one your gardening friends ask about--it's just such a unique habit. Bushy clematis are perfect for planting in beds and borders. You can hide a little plant ring among the blooms to get that lovely shape... Or let it grow in between your perennial shrubs and it will use them as support, creating a seamless display in your garden bed. Bushy clematis are herbaceous and mounding, dying to the ground at the end of one growing season and jumping back up in the next.
