When grown along a wall or a fence, Etoile Violette creates a canvas of beautiful flowers. It's one of the most free–flowering Clematis, and with its long bloom period, you'll enjoy the view all summer long. To highlight these dark blooms, plant against a light background. While a great choice for covering large trellises and pergolas, it also makes exceptional ground cover. Just plant it in the middle of your perennial bed, and let it ramble through. Clematis Viticella
Etoile Violette is in the GREEN pruning category. It blooms on old and new wood, so prune as often or as fully as you like to promote reblooming. See our EZ Pruning Guide for more information.
