Clematis viticella ‘Kermesina’
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 viticella ‘Kermesina’ full sun  partial shade

Plush crimson hues imbue the blooms of this robust and free flowering deciduous cultivar raised in the 1880s by the well-known French nursery, Lemoine. Green-tipped upon opening, four rubescent tepals exhibit illuminated white bases and margins that curl under, while their vivid dance encompasses a central hub of black anthers. The luxurious, downward glancing blossoms create an alluring vignette against a pearly colored backdrop.

Size: 10' 0"–12' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 4.
