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

The firm, well-formed 3 to 5 in. wide flowers assume a velvety sheen, which resonates with the darkest, most lavish purple-black shades imaginable when it’s overcast, and mysteriously morphs to dark purple when the sun comes out. Introduced in 1983 by Uno Kivistik, this deciduous vine’s dramatic blossoms are composed of 4 to 6 tepals, each with a heavily grooved central band, and pronounced, frilly light yellow stamens, creating a stunning contrast. ‘Romantika’s floral profusion can be showcased in a large container, splashed upon an obelisk or trellis, planted next to roses or situated by silver or golden foliage for heightened appeal.

Blooms mid-June–September

Size: 6' 0"–9' 0" high & spreading. 3/4
