Clematis ‘Ascotiensis’
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 ‘Ascotiensis’ full sun  partial shade  new plant

A late flowering jackmanii descendant, this treasured 1874 introduction was raised by John Standish and named for Ascot, the English town where it originated. Shapely clear medium blue blooms include greenish chocolate-colored anthers plus 4 to 6 tepals that initially unfold with a stunning deeper blue-mauve metallic luster. Affording late season color, the large bountiful flowers populate most of the stem and stage a lovely presentation in a patio pot. Hearty, deciduous and reliable, ‘Ascotiensis’ can complement red or yellow roses, scale small trees and shrubs or grace a trellis.

Blooms July–September

Size: 8'–12' high & spreading; hardy to zone 4.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
