Clematis chiisanensis ‘Lemon Bells’
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.

Hats off to the University of British Columbia for selecting this long blooming citrus-hued gem from a group of South Korean seedlings. Lustrous winecolored stems and sturdy trifoliate deciduous foliage host masses of pastel yellow bells described by thick prominently ridged tepals, burgundy-flushed bases and slender pointed tips that turn outward. Arising mostly from the previous season's wood, its nodding fairy-like flowers welcome in summer, while ethereal silver-laced fluffy seed heads extend the enchantment.

Blooms May–June

Size: 6-1/2'–10' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 6.
