Blue Virginsbower Clematis is a species of flowering plant from the buttercup family. This plant is native to North America and is commonly used in gardens and landscaping. This plant varies in appearance but generally produces vines and climbs surfaces. Blue Virginsbower Clematis produces deep purple-blue flowers and green leaves that are divide into three thick leaflets.

The Dutchman’s Pipe is a fast growing, deciduous, woody, climbing vine. Featuring large heart-shaped leaves that overlap and often hide the flowers. The Dutchman’s Pipe namesake comes from the long yellow-green, brown or purple flowers that flare at the end, resembling Dutch smoking pipes.

The Dutchman’s Pipe will make a great screen or shade in your urban landscape, but does require support from a trellis or a fence. To control the growth, cut back in late winter.
