Clematis ‘Fragrant Star (Vancouver™)’
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 ‘Fragrant Star (Vancouver™)’ full sun  partial shade

This compact easily managed vine headlines urbane perfectly fashioned star-style white flowers, boasting a 6 to 8 in. diameter, vivid maroon-tipped stamens, a delightful vanilla scent plus a repeat autumn bloom. Recently introduced by Canadian horticulturist Rob Wein, ‘Fragrant Star’ is the celebrated prodigy of a ‘Capitaine Thuilleaux’ and ‘Blue Ravine’ cross. Tinged green when grown in the shade and exceptional when paired with roses, the huge snowy colored flowers enhance a smaller statured deciduous foundation that’s ideal for containers, a trellis or a somewhat openly branched shrub such as a Viburnum.

Blooms May, June & September

Size: 6' 0"–8' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 4.
