(4 customer reviews)


SKU: 1408329416 Category:

CLEMATIS: Always called the “Queen of Vines,” nothing else makes the spectacular show of a clematis in full bloom. In almost all zones, these magnificent plants decorate mailboxes, trellises and porches with cascades of some of the most beautiful blooms in the flower kingdom, and they’re not difficult to grow. There’s no reason you can’t add them to your landscape.

Majestic, deep ruby-red summer flowers appearing almost black on opening, with golden-yellow centres and mid-green leaves. This compact, large-flowered clematis is perfect for growing in a container in partial shade. While it takes some time to establish the sight of the crushed velvet-like petals unfurling is well worth the wait. The seed heads are pretty, too, with their silvery-gray featherlike styles. There is an old saying with Clematis; “Tops in the sun and feet in the shade.” In other words the vine blooms best in the sun and benefits from a cluster of small plants, planted around the base of the plant. Many people simply plant a ground cover like ivy, myrtle, or pachysandra around the plant to shade the base. Clematis does best in fertile, humus rich, well-drained soil. Mulch well with composted manure or compost. Feed once a month with a well balanced fertilizer during the growing season.

    Upon arriving my thoughts were “well this isn’t going to work”…..2 pitiful looking twig thingy’s….After considering she was dormant, thought I’d try to revive…Gave just a little water, set her on the windowsill in the sun…and she thrived…Now, about 10 days later it’s grown about a foot or more and leafing…I think she’ll make it just fine…
    Have ordered from Hirts in the past and as far as I remember , have always been pleased..
