1 Gallon Pot Clematis -Dr. Ruppel
Enjoy beauty at higher levels. Clematis ‘Dr. Ruppel’ features 6-8 inch large lilac rose flowers. The petals have bold carmine-red central bars and yellow stamens. Wonderfully free flowering, ‘Dr. Ruppel’ blooms late spring (May/June) and again the end of summer (Aug./Sept.). Standing 6-10 feet tall, this Clematis is well suited for fences or trellises. ‘Dr Ruppel’ is also a great option for cut flower designs. Great for borders, specimens or climbing, ‘Dr Ruppel’ can be grown in the full sun to part shade locations in your garden or landscape. Clematis attract butterflies and hummingbirds, and the attractive spherical seed heads are a great source for hummingbird nests. Clematis are a deer and rabbit resistant variety, and grow in just about any well drained soil condition. We recommend shading the base of the plant with another plant or mulch to protect the roots from the sun.
Dr. Ruppel is a repeat bloomer so lightly prune after flowering.
