Blue Boy Clematis

Traveller's Joy Clematis is a species of flowering plant that is native to North America. This plant produces vines which are quite aggressive and can climb to heights of 10-20 feet. Traveller's Joy produces white flowers between July and September and typically grows on the edge of forests, moist slopes, fence rows and on streambanks.

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.
