Clematis ‘Elsa Späth’
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 ‘Elsa Späth’ full sun  partial shade

Bred by Berlin-born Ludwig Späth in 1891, ‘Elsa Späth’ enjoys a longstanding popularity thanks to her 6 to 8 in. wide blooms, which reliably festoon both new and old growth for months on end. Conjuring a marvelous deep coloration and looking delectable in cut arrangements, 6 to 8 broad, overlapping rich blue-violet tepals with short points plus dark red anthers define the opulent rounded blossoms. This easy-care highly favored AGM recipient makes a superb compact container specimen or strong growing deciduous companion for shrubs and climbing roses.

Blooms June & September

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