Plant Description

‘Fascination’ clematis is the result of a cross between two plants in the Clematis integrifolia group which are native to open, shrubby areas in Europe to Asia, where they sprawl through the undergrowth. Its solitary, 1.5”, violet-blue, bell-shaped flowers are borne in mid-summer into fall and are followed by attractive, feathery, silver seed heads. This selection, Fascination, has deep purple-blue, thick textured, upturned petals edged with white. It is a heavy bloomer in full sun to part shade and average to good soil. Southern gardeners should provide afternoon shade and a cooler root zone. Fascination is more of a scrambler than a climber so give it an open shrub to grow through (maybe sweet or swamp azalea, a rose, bottlebrush buckeye). Flowering is on new growth, so before new growth starts in the spring prune the vine down to the first pair of leaf buds. Flowers are delicate and stunning.
