Winner of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society, and in our opinion the best of the blues in the Alpina Clematis family, 'Blue Dancer' has longer and prettier flowers and is exceptionally cold hardy to -45F! From mid spring to early summer, and occasionally in fall, abundant soft sapphire-blue to lilac-blue nodding bell-shaped flowers measure up to 3 inches long with four slightly twisting petals that surround a creamy white center. Absolutely charming, especially when swaying in the breeze! As with all others in the Alpina family, following the spring bloom, Blue Dancer sports very showy pompom-like seeds heads persisting through summer. This one occasionally reblooms in fall in our gardens. At 6 to 10 feet tall, depending on the height of the support structure, Blue Dancer is ideal for growing on a pergola, arch, fence, tall obelisk, post or trellis, and is also suited for growing in pots and sprawling through shrubs, climbing roses and small trees.
