Clematis integrifolia ‘Blue Boy’
at Digging Dog

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 integrifolia ‘Blue Boy’ full sun  partial shade  new plant

Developed in 1947 by Canada’s impressive hybridizer Dr. Frank Skinner, this select seedling originated from a C. integrifolia and C. viticella cross. A pleasing fan-like symmetry is achieved as sturdy nonclinging stalks, needing only minimal support, produce paired wiry stems that jut out at pronounced angles with 4 in. wide steel-blue bells at their tips. Several hundred gracefully flaring flowers appear nonstop for a stunning nearly 3 month long display, while a moderate trimming produces yet another round of blooms. ‘Blue Boy’s sleek, compact habit can be threaded into a rose, grown alongside C. x durandii or premiered in a pot.

Size: 4' 0"–6' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“I held my breath and opened the box (after a long delay in opening the delivered plants, due to catastrophic flooding), dug down through the damp paper shreds and found all the plants alive!!!! I'm so relieved. I had to write and thank you for the hardiness of the plants, and for packing them so carefully.... Thank you, Digging Dog. I'll be back.”
