Clematis ‘Arabella’
at Digging Dog

(Integrifolia Group)

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 ‘Arabella’ full sun  partial shade  new plant

Celebrated as the most popular nonclimbing Clematis and the longest flowering of all Clematis, this 2002 AGM recipient promotes plentiful, rounded bright blue-mauve flowers from spring through fall upon a winsome, semiherbaceous shrubby habit. The incessant 3 in. wide blooms initially glow with a reddish cast, then fade to soft blue, each defined by 4 to 8 classy pear-shaped tepals surrounding pronounced creamy yellow stamens. An exceptional integrifolia descendant well-suited for any garden, ‘Arabella’ can tumble down walls, weave through medium-sized shrubs in a mixed border or forge a compact flowering ground cover.

Size: 3' 0"–6' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“I found Digging Dog in a gardening magazine and am so thrilled I did. I went to their website after reading about them and was so impressed I immediately placed an order ( after checking with Garden Watchdog of course !) My plants were delayed 3 weeks due to the hot weather. Each Monday someone from Digging Dog called, explained the situation and explained the delay. What service!! My plants arrived today happy healthy and good size. I could not be happier and will shop Digging Dog much in the future.”
