Mongolian Bells Clematis integrifolia PSHarlan Plant Select
Mongolian Bells Clematis integrifolia PSHarlan Plant Select
Introduced from Mongolia by Harlan Hamernik of Bluebird Nursery, this is a very compact form of the common herbaceous species. Available in a spectrum of colors (including pink, white, lavender and blue), it makes the perfect edging or mounding clump in a border or Xeriscape. Attractive seed heads in late summer and fall. Perennial.

Tips from the pros: Cut the plant back to the ground after the first flush of bloom and when the plant gets floppy. The new growth will be upright and attractive and it may bloom again. Pull undesired seedlings. Less water will keep this plant looking its best.
