Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener

Clematis, Early Large-flowered Clematis, Niobe Clematis
Niobe clematis is a compact, deciduous woody vine that bears many flowers early in the season. In late spring to early summer, large, single flowers of dark ruby red 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.
