Unique CharactersticsMissouri Botanical Garden: 'My Angel' is a late-blooming, small-flowered, hybrid clematis vine that typically climbs to 6-9'. It is reportedly a cross of C. orientalis var. orientalis and C. intricata. Nodding flowers appear singly or in clusters of 2-7 over a June to September bloom period. Each flower (1.5") has four showy tepals that are yellow inside, light purple red outside and light tan along the edges. Flowers give way to fluffy seed heads. Attractive purple stems are clad with pinnate-compound blue-green leaves. Cultivar name is in reference to the wife (Engelina) of the introducer of the plant. U.S. Plant Patent Applied For (PPAF).
