Clematis ‘H. F. Young’
at Digging Dog

Clematis  H. F. Young


Simple and beautiful, Clematis includes over 300 named cultivars and even more wild species than the rose. Our selections offer opulent blossoms, attractive, carefree foliage, and ornamental seed heads, in exchange for a minimum of attention. Use them to cover just about every stump and dead tree, as well as on trellises, arbors, pergolas, walls and tall shrubs. They prefer to be planted slightly deep in cool, well drained soil, with mulch or a ground cover to shade their feet; provide a support and let them climb.

Medium Band.

Clematis ‘H. F. Young’ full sun  partial shade

Legions of big, beautiful, blue single flowers highlighted by contrasting cream-colored stamens dress this hardy, RHS award winning Clematis. Between 6 to 8 round-edged tepals extend over one another, emphasizing pointed tips and mauvish blue flipsides, each with a subtle greenish white central zone.

Not as rambunctious as many cultivars, ‘H. F. Young’ sprouts paired, widely spaced deciduous leaves that can drape a pergola, large trellis or an obelisk in a mixed border.

Blooms May – June & September.

Size: 7'–9' high & spreading; hardy to zone 4.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week: We love Tricyrtis 'Empress' for its unique, late blooming flowers. Renowned for its extra large and wider open flowers, this exquisite, newly introduced Toad Lily is a formosana hybrid. Ornate, spidery spaced petals are inscribed by occasional darkened tips and irregular velvet-rich deep purple spots, stipples and mottling on a creamy white background. An enticing fall beacon amongst the shadows, ‘Empress’s showy terminal blooms are supported by an upright robust gathering of lustrous, semi-clasping dark green foliage that stays dapper all season.

Customer Comment:

“The clematis I ordered was especially impressive--nicely staked, sporting two new shoots.  The roots of all the plants were very well developed and I'm looking forward to enjoying all of them this season and many more to come.”
