Clematis ‘Victoria’
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 ‘Victoria’ full sun  partial shade

A resplendent English cultivar raised by Cripps & Sons in 1867, this popular vintage Clematis has a lot to offer: well-formed richly hued 5 ½ in. blooms, excellent cold hardiness and vigor aplenty. The deep rosy mauve flowers are composed of 4 to 6 broad overlapping tepals with pointed tips, slightly notched margins plus deeply grooved pinkish purple midribs that eventually lighten to mauve. Sporting bright greenish yellow anthers, �Victoria�s plush bountiful blooms need a light background for best effect, while its handsome visage lends itself to scaling pergolas and arbors, rambling through shrubs or accompanying roses and other Clematis.

Blooms July–September

Size: 9' 0"–12' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 4.
