Product Description

CLEMATIS: Always called the "Queen of Vines," nothing else makes the spectacular show of a clematis in full bloom. In almost all zones, these magnificent plants decorate mailboxes, trellises and porches with cascades of some of the most beautiful blooms in the flower kingdom, and they're not difficult to grow. There's no reason you can't add them to your landscape. Clematis is most often seen in softer shades, but Dr. Rupple offers fans a showier choice. This is a bi-color repeat bloomer: in May and June, it displays 8-in. rose-carmine blooms with white anthers; in September, the flowers come in again, but the colors are toned down a bit. There is an old saying with Clematis; "Tops in the sun and feet in the shade." In other words the vine blooms best in the sun and benefits from a cluster of small plants, planted around the base of the plant. Many people simply plant a ground cover like ivy, myrtle, or pachysandra around the plant to shade the base. The Dr. Ruppel Clematis does best in fertile, humus rich, well-drained soil. Mulch well with composted manure or compost. Feed once a month with a well balanced fertilizer during the growing season.

    I just received them Wednesday, June 10th and planted them immediately. They were bone dry, but packaged with great care. I’m keeping my fingers crossed as the one looked brownish and maybe not so healthy, but it may just have a different colored leaf. I have a picture of them when they were received. Will post a picture ‘before and after’ when they take off!
