Clematis viticella ‘Emilia Plater’
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 ‘Emilia Plater’ full sun  partial shade

Bred by an 85 year old Polish monk in 1967 and named after a young Polish freedom fighter from the early 1800s, this vigorous cultivar exhibits grace and unwavering tenacity. Her splendid summertime flowers, painted in stunning bluish lavender hues, are considered large for a viticella, measuring 4 to 6 inches across given favorable growing conditions.

Widely spaced tepals surround creamy green anthers and are distinguished by undulating edges, recurving tips, shaded central bars and darker veins. Acquiescent to most garden soils, even drier ones, 'Emilia Plater' can ramble up a pole in the midst of the border backed by Buddleja knappii's silver and green leaves.

Blooms July-September

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