Clematis ‘The President’
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 ‘The President’ full sun  partial shade

Raised by a Mr. Charles Noble in 1876, this RHS award winner is a widely popular early flowering Clematis. The large plush purple-blue blossoms are somewhat cupped and well-endowed with 6 to 8 wavy margined overlapping tepals. Lounging amongst dark green deciduous foliage that is bronze-toned when young, the 7 in. wide repeat blooming flowers offer additional enticements: pointed tips, silvery undersides, pronounced dark red anthers and open spiky seed heads. Whether scaling a column or pergola, or clambering upon silver or golden foliaged plants for heightened contrast, ‘The President’s color-rich compact habit earns our vote.

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