Clematis viticella ‘Royal Velours’
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 ‘Royal Velours’ full sun  partial shade

Distinguished by a velvety texture and satin-like sheen, ‘Royal Velours’s intense deep wine-purple flowers are considered the ‘darkest of the dark’. Legions of opulent semi-nodding flowers feature 4 to 6 overlapping tepals embellished with deeply grooved lighter midribs and greenish black anthers. A stunning 1914 French selection, this hardy deciduous AGM winner can be superimposed against golden foliage or a silvery backdrop like Teucrium fruticans (Select Form), guaranteeing a magnificent summer time spectacle.

Blooms June–September

Size: 9' 0"–12' 0" high & spreading. Zone 3/4.
