Clematis hirsutissima var. scottii
Long-blooming Scott's sugarbowls make a mound of blue-green, lacy foliage, topped in late spring and early summer by large, nodding blue flowers. Bees and bumblebees frequent the bell-shaped blossoms. Shimmering golden seed heads follow suit. Tips from the pros: Slow to establish but very long-lived.
