Clematis 'Bolam Belle'

Small, nodding or drooping, bell-shaped, dark violet flowers. Outside, silver-grey hue over violet ground. Fruit heads persistent.

Bought by Heather Russell at a Hardy Plant Society meeting as a seedling from (white) campaniflora; the only other clematis in the raiser's garden was 'Praecox'. 'Bolam Belle' seeds freely but does not seem to come true.
