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 ‘Niobe’ full sun  partial shade

For its hardy, manageable habit and its quantities of large, glamorous long blooming flowers upon tapered green leaves, this acclaimed deciduous Clematis earned the coveted RHS award in 1993 and world-wide notoriety. Single, flat-faced and centered with sprightly yellow stamens, each nearly 6 in. wide bloom hosts 6 to 8 rich as velvet, ruby red tepals, which are broad at the base, narrow toward the tip and age to a fine red-wine color. Bred by Poland’s Wladyslaw Noll, ‘Niobe’s compact form can cozy up to climbing roses or be featured as a regal specimen in a mixed bed or a container.

Blooms June – September.

Size: 6' 0"–7-3/4' high & spreading; hardy to zone 4.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
