Clematis viticella Venosa Violacea

Clematis

Simple and beautiful, Clematis includes over 300 named cultivars and even more wild species than the rose. Our selections offer opulent blossoms, attractive, carefree foliage, and ornamental seed heads, in exchange for a minimum of attention. Use them to cover just about every stump and dead tree, as well as on trellises, arbors, pergolas, walls and tall shrubs. They prefer to be planted slightly deep in cool, well drained soil, with mulch or a ground cover to shade their feet; provide a support and let them climb.

Medium Band.

Clematis viticella ‘Venosa Violacea’ full sun  partial shade

Introduced by the famed French nursery, Lemoine in 1884 this magnificent two-toned AGM winner, though listed as a viticella, begets the largest most distinctive flowers of the species. Overlapping slightly at each base, 6 boat-shaped tepals encompass black-tipped stamens and sport white central swathes with feathery pinkish purple veins that intensify to forge a solid violet border plus a vivid star-like pattern. Long lasting as a cut flower, the gorgeous 4 to 6 in. wide blooms blanket attractive fresh green foliage for most of the summer. Robust, yet moderately sized, ‘Venosa Violacea’ can grow alongside climbing roses or over golden heathers, up lampposts and trellises, through large shrubs or against silver-laced foliage.

Size: 8' 0"–10' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 4.
