I bought 3 of these this year, as I had one last year & loved it! It kept blooming way into quite cold weather before it died. I feed my hummingbirds & think they might have visited these flowers, but not sure. Also my 20++ year old evergreen Clematis that died back last year, came up again & bloomed early this year in March. ( it came from your nursery)

a lovely plant in habit, color. Its sweet and demure personality belies its toughness. It grew in the area of my Philadelphia, (PA) garden with the worst, dry soil and asked for no special treatment.
