Clematis armandii ‘Apple Blossom’
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.

Lolling upon vigorous yet slightly tender polished foliage, vanilla-scented, eye-catching clusters of white saucer-shaped 2 to 2 ó in. flowers are defined by yellow stamens and 4 to 6 well-spaced broad tepals with pink painted flipsides. Sprightly rose-colored buds and bronze-tinged stems further enhance the long boatshaped dark green leaves, which sport conspicuous ribbing, pointed tips and rich coppery hues when young. A 2002 Garden Merit Award recipient, this stylish evergreen climber affords an enticing floriferous display each spring and a handsome year-round presence when situated in a sheltered well-drained sunny abode, such as a south-facing garden or house wall.

Blooms March – April.

Size: 15' 0"–25' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 7.
