About Clematis viticella 'Etoile Violette':

Clematis viticella 'Etoile Violette' is a stunning vigorous climber. It will quickly cover trellis and supports with dense foliage and its amazingly profuse display of blooms.

Its flowers are produced from summer right through to autumn. Beautiful, rich and velvety, its deep purple petals surround prominent golden star-like anthers.

Great for your garden:

'Etoile Violette' prefers a sheltered spot, planted in full sun or partial shade, although it will tolerate more exposure to windy sites than most clematis, and is great for coastal situations.

It is a brilliant choice for covering large areas of trellis or pergola, and looks fantastic climbing through other plants particularly roses. It will also respond well to being trained through trees and shrubs, and looks glorious.

It has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit due to its outstanding performance in the garden and its good resistance to disease.

Trivia:

Clematis are toxic plants, so we are obliged to advise you not to ingest them, but they have been used historically as medicine. Native Americans used to use minute doses of the plant as a treatment for migraines and nervous disorders, as well as to treat skin infections and is also used in parts of Africa to treat eczema.

It even makes an "appearance" in Bach's rescue remedy: Bach flower remedies consist of brandy and water that was used to rinse the relevant flower/s and thus capture their spirit, so it is debatable how much of the flower they contain in the material sense.
