Very closely related to C. fusca, differing mainly in its short-stalked flowers with small bracts and the more violet coloured flowers. A twining plant. The leafstalks wrap themselves around twigs and branches for support. When a side of the stalk touches an object, the growth on that side slows down whilst the other side grows at its normal rate - this causes the leaf stalk to entwine the object it is touching. Plants flower on the current season's new shoots. They can usually be left unpruned, though weak or dead shoots can be removed and main shoots can be cut back by up to two thirds of their length if they are outgrowing their allotted area. When planting out, in order to avoid the disease 'clematis wilt', it is best to plant the rootball about 8cm deeper in the soil. This will also serve to build up a good root crown of growth buds. Plants in this genus are notably resistant to honey fungus. Plants seem to be immune to the predations of rabbits.A greedy plant, inhibiting the growth of nearby plants, especially legumes.
