Oh my! I've discovered a rare species of Clematis clambering up through a hydrangea in my garden. It is Clematis microflorum 'Little Fiddly'.
Clematis microflorum 'Little Fiddly': Charming, deep blue flowers with conspicuous butter yellow stamens.
Slow to germinate, seeds may lay dormant for many years. If attended to properly in the developing stages, it blooms profusely and is one of the longest flowering varieties. Once established and flowering, the flowers will last for many, many seasons.
As it is a very slow grower, no pruning is required if it doesn’t hinder other plants’ growth. In case of necessity, prune before flowering.
Ideal for growing over fences, walls, or scrambling over rocks and old stumps. Particularly useful for planting near small trees, shrubs and conifers. It makes good ground cover. A very hardy plant with low requirements.
