Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CLEMATIS 'Elsa Späth'
Clematis, Early Large-flowered Clematis, Elsa Späth Clematis
The large lavender-blue flowers of ‘Elsa Späth’ have brightened many a garden. This popular clematis cultivar is vigorous and heavy-blooming, which also adds to its desirability.
Hybrid clematis is a hardy deciduous woody vine that climbs by twining stems. The vines are lined with green compound leaves that appear in spring. The large flowers appear from spring to summer and are followed by fluffy clusters of silvery seeds.
Clematis grows best in sites with full sun and fertile, well-drained soil. It grows and flowers best if its roots remain cool under a vegetative layer or thick mulch. 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.
This is a Group 2 clematis, which means its flower buds develop on the previous year's growth, so pruning should be done after it blooms.
