Clematis ‘Gipsy Queen’
at Digging Dog


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 ‘Gipsy Queen’ full sun  partial shade

A classy 1877 introduction by the former British nursery Cripps & Sons, ‘Gipsy Queen’ puts on a regal air with plush dark purple flowers borne on strong stems. The gorgeous abundant blooms are composed of burgundy-colored anthers plus 4 to 6 broad blunt-tipped tepals, which are narrow at the base, lending an open aspect amongst deciduous pinnate leaves. This peppy medium-sized AGM winner reigns supreme, either positioned near silver or gold-leafed shrubs or scrambling upon an arbor or column.

Size: 10' 0"–12' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 4.
