Common Name: “Clematis”

(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.

Clematis Growing Tips:

Clematis Prune Group 2 - These cultivars produce early season bloom on the previous season's growth and late season flowers on new growth. Generally, these cultivars are only pruned to shape. In the early spring (February or March), prune them lightly above the first pair of new swollen leaf buds, removing about 12 inches from each shoot. Also remove any dead or weak stems at this time.
