Clematis ' Blue eyes' - * RESTFUL COLOUR IN SKY BLUE* - This Hardy Perennial Climber has been container grown so can be planted at any time of the year. We despatch WITH container so the roots are safe.
Clematis 'Blue Eyes' has beautiful sky-blue flowers in profusion. A compact free-flowering climbing plant of recent introduction. An excellent variety that grows well with moderate growth to a nice height of 6 to 8 feet (2 m) tall, making 'Blue Eyes' perfect for patio container gardening. Clematis 'Blue eyes' has large, sky-blue/ lilac flowers (4-6" in diameter) and in great numbers over a long period of time - in May-June, and again in August-Sept. Suitable for growing over fences, walls, arbors, pergolas, trellises and poles. This climbing plant can clamber over natural supports eg small trees or large, bushy deciduous shrubs. I love to see Clematis 'Blue Eyes' growing in containers on terraces and balconies, they just seem to flourish, making them perfect for the small garden . Prune Clematis 'Blue Eyes' lightly each year early spring removing any weak or damaged stems.
