Clematis Crispa is unique in form, color, and detail–from the spring buds to the fall's seedheads, you'll enjoy a Clematis unlike anything else in the garden. Clematis crispa is a woodland beauty native to the Southeastern United States.

Crispa displays variable color, ranging from a darker purple-blue to pastel or even opalescent tones. Soil and climate can affect the coloring of the plant, but some of that variability is inherent to this remarkable species. The underside of each sepal is colored with a cross pattern, adding another level of beautiful nuance. Strongly recurved rolled sepals and lacey edges are hallmarks of this unique plant. Crispa plants love to climb or sprawl, and can thrive in conditions that range from normal to a little wet. This is a petite-sized plant with small flowers. A rare, hard-to-find Clem, Clematis Crispa is deserving of a prized location in your garden. Clematis 'crispa'

In our EZ Pruning Guide, this variety is in the GREEN pruning category. These Clematis bloom on new vines that emerge from the ground each year.. Prune hard in the spring and as often as you like to encourage reblooming and keep the plant as tidy as you like.
