More Information
Botanical PronunciationKLEM-a-tis
LoreClematis is known as the "Queen of Vines" because of its extraordinary flowers that have only gotten larger, more fabulous and numerous over time at the hands of breeders.
Average Size at MaturityQuickly reaches 6 to 8 ft. tall, 3 to 4 ft. wide, with support.
Bloom TimeSpring and Fall
Design IdeasClematis is perhaps the most beautiful of all vines for training onto vertical treillage. This ruby colored beauty belongs in courtyards and around outdoor living spaces where the blossoms can be enjoyed close up. They are gorgeous spiraled up wood posts and classical Greek style columns. These plants are also draped over walls and fences in a mass of color. In the Old World they can be found trained into the branches of long dead trees for natural arbor. They are also used as ground covers to cascade down banks and slopes, and to dangle off retaining wall edges.
