Clematis alpina ‘Jacqueline du Pré’

Clematis

Simple and beautiful, Clematis includes over 300 named cultivars and even more wild species than the rose. Our selections offer stylish 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. Each vine is 18 inches to 2 feet tall. Medium Band.

<i>Clematis alpina</i> ‘Jacqueline du Pré’

Honored with the same name as the musical luminary Jacqueline du Pré, this Clematis harmoniously orchestrates bright green deciduous leaves arranged in threes, maroon-tinged stems and large, freely borne rosy mauve flowers. Suspended from long stalks, pointed dusky mulberry-hued buds reveal light-centered, semipendent blooms composed of four separate, out curving tepals with pale-blushed margins and darker orchid shades on the exterior.

A shimmering overture announcing spring’s arrival, the dainty floral display garnishes a vigorous, cold hardy vine, acquiescing to both cool, shady northern spots and sunny, more exposed locations.

Blooms April – May.

Size: 8' 0" – 10' 0" high x 0" & spreading wide.

Hardy to zone 3.

We are so excited about Carl Dellatore & Rizzoli New York's new book "Garden Design Master Class", which will be available April 14th on Amazon. It's a compelling collection of essays from international garden designers. Digging Dog Nursery co-owner Deborah Whigham is honored to have her article on the Autumnal Garden included.
