CLEMATIS: Always called the "Queen of Vines," nothing else makes the spectacular show of a clematis in full bloom. In almost all zones, these magnificent plants decorate mailboxes, trellises and porches with cascades of some of the most beautiful blooms in the flower kingdom, and they're not difficult to grow. There's no reason you can't add them to your landscape.
This Clematis features large nodding bells with a slight recurve, accentuated by shading along the edges of the sepals. When summer comes, hundreds of these beautifully shaded bells cover the plant, giving a punch of bluish–purple color to the border. Roguchi is a non–vining Clematis that plays well with shrubs, or let it weave in and out of your perennial plantings. You can prop it as they do in England with willow branches, or let it spill over the sides of a retaining wall. Clematis integrifolia 'Roguchi'
