Clematis 'Purple Dream' (Purple Dream Clematis) is a magnificent woody vine that flaunts large, pink-purple coloured blooms. The double clematis flowers are pleasantly grapefruit-scented, and exceptionally large for the Atragene Group. The distinctive, bell shaped, nodding flowers are 10-12 cm wide. Set on purple stems and pedicles, the semi-double blooms start as crimson buds, emerge as purple, then fade to a light pink colour over time. Stamens and anthers are cream coloured. Double Purple Bell-shaped Clematis flowers bloom in May and occasionally again in August. This fragrant clematis produces showy, fluffy seedheads in the fall. The attractive foliage is large, trifoliate, and dark green coloured.

Typically, these Atragene Group Clematis vines are best planted near a trellis or fence to climb on, but they can also look good sprawling over shrubs, stumps or in perennial gardens as a groundcover. Atragene Clematis requires some kind of support to climb, but will attach itself to it through its twining leaf petioles. Purple Dream Clematis can reach up to 3 m (10 ft) tall. This double purple Clematis is best planted in a location where the foliage and flowers are mostly in the sun, but the roots are kept cool and moist in the shade. Consider using mulch around the root zone in summer and fall. Pruning Group: 1.

Pruning Groups:
Group 1 – Flowers only on old wood (previous year). Prune after spring flowering.
Group 2 – Flowers on both old and new wood. Little pruning should be done for woody-stemmed members of this Group. If cut to the ground or pruned in fall or spring, flowering will be reduced or delayed, but not prevented.
Group 3 – Flowers only on new wood. Can be cut to the ground in fall or spring.
