Description: Move the Clematis Garden into Patio Containers, Hanging Baskets, Borders and even Indoors! This ultra-compact variety reaches just over a foot in height and grows and blooms as well indoors as it does out. Bijou™ is a real breakthrough in Clematis Breeding and allows you to enjoy this beauty as close as you would like, thriving equally well in full sun outdoors and bright indirect light indoors, Bijou™ flowers dependably for you. In fact, if grown indoors it can be trimmed and repotted after blooming, assuring you of another flower show within the year. Clematis Bijou™ has a Beautiful compact growing habit to just over a foot tall and spread and the flowers are an increadable size for its height, blooming 3 to 4 inches across. They are showy mauve blooms faintly striped in dark pink and their ruffled petal edges come to a neat point for a starry effect. A lovely color and giving you a repeat performance later in the year. Bred for indoor or outdoor culture by master Clematarian Raymond J. Evison of Guernsey, thriving equally well in full sun outdoors and bright indirect light indoors, Bijou™ grows and flowers dependably year after year So compact that it appears dwarf, this up-and-coming little plant has great bloom strength and a vigorous nature. If you want to plant it outdoors after enjoying a season or two inside, Bijou™ is quite amenable. It is in Pruning Group II, and should be treated just like any other Clematis out of doors (it is a winter hardy perennial). What a versatile, amazing plant! Give this climber some support for its stems if growing upwards, and expect it to take a season to "settle" before beginning its ultra-reliable pattern of growth and bloom. What a fine gift it makes to a gardener pent up in the city, or working in an office every day! Bijou™ likes fluorescent light, and will flourish in such conditions if given good potting soil and regular food and water.
