Plant Common Name

Clematis, Sakala Clematis

General Description

The large flowers of Sakala™ are palest lavender with a broad deep pink band down each petal/tepal. The vine is compact, heavy-blooming and exceptionally hardy.

Hybrid clematis is a hardy deciduous woody vine that climbs by twining stems. The compact vine is lined with green compound leaves that appear in spring. The colorful flowers appear from late spring to summer and are followed by fluffy clusters of silvery seeds.

Plant this vine 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. 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.
