Clematis  Kilian Donahue

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 ‘Kilian Donahue’ full sun  partial shade

Embroidered by decorative clusters of burgundy-tipped white anthers, giant 5 in. wide blossoms are a floristís dream and a gardenerís boon. Prolific bicolored blooms manifest ever-changing hues as they mature and fool you into thinking two different Clematis are intertwined. Newly unfurling pink tepals showcase bold stripes in plush ruby red shades that develop orchid-tinted borders plus brilliant fuchsia hues. Eventually they mellow to a pronounced pink, while the background adopts a warm lavender cast. Headlining a unique summer-long floral display, handsome deciduous leafage and a relatively small stature, this phenomenal Clematis is tailor-made for a container or an exalted patio position.

Blooms June – September.

Size: 8' 0"–10' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 4.
