Always called the "Queen of Vines," nothing else makes the spectacular show of a clematis in full bloom. In almost all zones, these magnificent plants decorate mailboxes, trellises and porches with cascades of some of the most beautiful blooms in the flower kingdom, and they're not difficult to grow. There's no reason you can't add them to your landscape.
Clematis Purpurea Plena Elegans, Clematis viticella 'Purpurea Plena Elegans', has double reddish-purple 3" flowers that bloom profusely throughout the season. This elegant variety is very carefree and disease resistant. It thrives in full sun, but will grow in almost any location.
It will need a supporting structure to grow properly, but will also grow over large shrubs, over walls, cover stumps, and make perfect cover ups for unsightly service areas.
Grow it in a rich, porous, alkaline soil with plenty of room for the roots to spread. Best performance is when the tops are in full sunlight and the roots are shaded, so apply generous mulch or a shallow-rooted ground cover near the base of the vine. Prune lightly above the new leaf buds in early spring and remove any dead or weak stems.
It is a very reliable performer once established; it takes a season or two to get going! A vigorous grower, Clematis Purpurea Plena Elegans is excellent for growing through shrubs, and makes a great cut flower!
