    Why “Niobe”? I see no tears.

    This photo is not ‘Niobe’ it is most likely ‘Etoile Violette’
    a vigorous Clematis viticella hybrid which looks a lot like ‘Jackmanii’ except 2/3’s the size.
    ‘Niobe’ is a large flowering, dark red clematis which opens almost a black red. It also grows less than 2 m’s tall, so is great in smaller places.

    Fabio, write your question in Portuguese and I’ll have it translated.

    Ah, sorry. Well, I haven’t updated this entry yet to reflect the fact that this is much more likely to be ‘Etoile Violette’, as mentioned in the comments. ‘Etoile Violette’ has the European Clematis viticella as a parent, and it was discovered / bred in France.
