fauriei 'Blue Stream'

Small, double, violet flowers.

Timo Löfgren wrote to tell us that "From Jan Lindmark I have heard that this one is the same C. fauriei which Magnus Johnson used in his crossings. Earlier he sold it in smaller amounts as C. fauriei, but some years after his book came out he named it ‘Blue Stream’. It has been sold in bigger amounts with this cultivar name from SLU Balsgård, where Johnson’s clematis collection is situated.

"On Balsgård’s old web-site they had following information: "Clematis fauriei 'Blue Stream' - deep blue-violet botanical clematis.”"
