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 ‘Doctor Ruppel’ full sun  partial shade

The dexterous hands of an Argentine doctor raised this fabulous free flowering Clematis. Boasting wavy edges and a sensuous satiny luster, each large single blossom is composed of 6 to 8 overlapping rose pink tepals, which encompass candent yellow-brown anthers. Dark fuchsia-colored central brush strokes and tapered points define the tepals. A medium-sized, moderately vigorous stature renders it well-suited for container culture or a garden arch.

Coveted by floral arrangers and hummingbirds alike, ‘Doctor Ruppel’ charms gardeners with repeat bloom periods, curly tailed spherical seed heads and a mettle tough enough to endure strong sunlight.

Blooms May – June & September.

Size: 8'–10' high & spreading; hardy to zone 4.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!

Customer Comment:

“The clematis I ordered was especially impressive--nicely staked, sporting two new shoots.  The roots of all the plants were very well developed and I'm looking forward to enjoying all of them this season and many more to come.”
