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.

Blue Boy Clematis is a cold-hardy, fast growing, woody climbing vine. Hundreds of stunning steel-blue bell shaped flowers adorn the vine throughout the summer that droop and appear to hang in the air. The fibrous stems spread and create a fan-like symmetry shape.

This species will do best with support from a trellis, fence, or even other shrubs or tree stumps.

The Blue Boy Clematis was developed in Manitoba, Canada in 1947 by famous breeder Frank L. Skinner by crossing C. integrifolia x C. viticella, but it didn’t gain popularity until the 1990’s.
