This rare US native shrubby clematis is only found in four counties in western Virginia, growing at the edge of dry woods. Clematis addisonii has proven to be an easy-to-grow, superb garden performer. Clematis addisonii dies to the ground each season and re-emerges in spring with large single leaves on each side of the central stem to 30" tall. While Clematis addisonii usually stands upright, well-grown specimens may twine gently into neighboring plants. For us, Clematis addisonii flowers heavily in spring, and then again in late summer and fall with lavender bell-shaped flowers with contrasting white centers. This is a superb performer that deserves to be more widely grown.
