Clematis macropetala

Most clematis are climbers, growing through shrubs and trees, or whatever support you want to give them. There are also a few herbaceous perennials, and at least one shrub. The colourful flowers are usually followed by the heads of feathery seeds, which are also ornamental.

Clematis macropetala is a very hardy species from northern China, deciduous, which draws attention with its nodding, multi-petalled flowers, pale blue to violet. Actually there are just four petals, narrow and pointed, but lots of the stamens are petal-like, and these can be the same colour as the real petals or cream.
