at Digging Dog
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.
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.

“I found Digging Dog in a gardening magazine and am so thrilled I did. I went to their website after reading about them and was so impressed I immediately placed an order ( after checking with Garden Watchdog of course !) My plants were delayed 3 weeks due to the hot weather. Each Monday someone from Digging Dog called, explained the situation and explained the delay. What service!! My plants arrived today happy healthy and good size. I could not be happier and will shop Digging Dog much in the future.”
