Mongolian Snowflakes

Clematis hexapetala

Mongolian snowflakes is a striking herbaceous clematis forming a mounded snowstorm of 2-inch, six-petaled ivory colored flowers that bloom May through summer. Spent flowers give way to shiny, feathery seed puffs that are showy in their own right. Dark green foliage supports the flurry of flowers and seed heads on this drought-tolerant beauty brought by Harlan Hamernik of Bluebird Nursery.
