Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CLEMATIS 'Doctor Ruppel'
Clematis, Doctor Ruppel Clematis, Early Large-flowered Clematis
Doctor Ruppel clematis is a deciduous woody vine that bears many flowers early in the season. From late spring to summer, large blooms with rose pink tepals marked with darker rose-pink bands appear along twining stems covered with medium green leaves. This clematis grows best in sites with full sun and fertile, well drained soil. Flower buds develop from the previous year's growth, so pruning should be done after plants bloom. If left unpruned, plants will sporadically flower again in fall. As with most clematis, this selection adds a vertical element to the garden and looks best when trained on a fence, trellis or pergola.
