One of the most popular and easiest to grow of the Clematis family, The 'Jackmanii Clematis' is a care-free Clematis that will reward you with rich purple blooms that fade to violet over a long summer season. The 'Jackmanii' does well in almost any type of soil, but does need good drainage to thrive. Like most Clematis, it can be trained to grow over arbors, trellises, and walls.
