(Clematis) Enjoy beauty at higher levels. Clematis Dr. Ruppel features 6- 8" large lilac rose flowers that have petals with bold carmine-red central bars and yellow stamens. Wonderfully free flowering Dr. Ruppel blooms late spring (May/June) and again the end of summer ( Aug./Sept.) . Standing 6-10 foot tall this Clematis is well suited for fences or trellises. Dr Ruppel is also a great option for cut flower designs. Great for borders, specimens or climbing, Dr Ruppel can be grown in the full sun to part shade locations in your garden or landscape. Clematis attract butterflies and hummingbirds, and the attractive spherical seed heads are a great source for hummingbirds to nest with. Clematis are a deer and rabbit resistant variety and grow in just about any well drained soil condition. We recommend shading the base of the plant with another plant or mulch to protect the roots from the sun.

Very Hardy Review by Aelita Z | Zone: 8
Great plant! Blooms heavily in the spring. Very hardy and doesn't mind the south side of the fence in Memphis, TN. (Posted on 3/13/2009)
