Design Ideas Clematis 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.
Flower Color Blue
Foliage Color Green
Companion Plants Japanese Maple (Acer); Shasta Daisy (Chrysanthemum); Salvia (Salvia); Rose (Rosa); Daylily (Hemerocallis)
CARE
Care Thrives in well-drained, lightly alkaline soil, with roots sheltered and top growth in the sun. Mulch to conserve moisture. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed regularly beginning in spring. Prune spent flowers to promote repeat bloom. Provide trellis or arbor support.
HISTORY
Lore Clematis 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.
