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.

I wanted this arrangement to celebrate the diverse beauty that autumn affords. It was photographed by acclaimed garden photographer, Saxon Holt, who happened to be visiting us.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers, last chance for Fantastic Fall Sale, Gift Certificates now on sale!

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.
