Clematis integrifolia is a herbaceous, woody-based, upright, non-climbing perennial with a dense and somewhat sprawling habit. It bears solitary, nodding, bell-shaped flowers with slightly twisted violet to blue sepals and creamy white anthers from May to July. Sporadic blooming sometimes occurs throughout the summer. Blossoms mature to attractive, feathery, silver-green, or silvery brown seed heads.
CareStems tend to be weaker and sprawl more when grown in part shade. May need support. Keep roots moist and cool. Best when grown in large groups. Grow in fertile, medium wet, well-drained loams with abundant organic matter.
PropagationDivide or take basal cuttings in spring.
ProblemsWilt, powdery mildew, rust, fungal spots, and stem cankers are common. Scale insects, whiteflies, earwigs, aphids can occur.
