Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Clematis, Late Large-flowered Clematis, Negritjanka Clematis
The large plum purple blooms of ‘Negritjanka’ have long petals touched with a hint of dark red. The moderately large vine blooms from summer to fall is the result of a cross between Clematis 'Gipsy Queen' and C. viticella. It was bred by M. L. Orlov of the Central Republic Botanic Gardens of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences in Kiev.
Hybrid clematis is a hardy deciduous woody vine that climbs by twining stems. The vines are lined with green compound leaves, and the colorful flowers appear later in the season 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 3 clematis, which means it bears flowers on the current year’s growth and can be hard pruned.
