Looking for a unique and eye-catching addition to your garden? Look no further than Clematis crispa, also known as swamp leather flower, blue jasmine, or curly clematis. This semi-woody twining vine is native to floodplain forests, marshes, and swamps throughout the southeastern United States. Its pale blue to violet-blue bell-shaped flowers with white interiors bloom in late spring to early summer, followed by attractive seedheads. With its ability to climb walls, trellises, and other stationary structures, this plant provides good architectural height and framework for small gardens. It can also be planted to sprawl over and through large shrubs, old tree stumps, or simply as a ground cover. To ensure healthy growth, this clematis needs consistently moist soils and should be planted in full sun to part shade.
