Plant Features

Rhapsody Clematis Plants bear a wonderful sapphire-blue or a brilliant royal purple flower, depending upon where you plant it. Planted in full sun, the Rhapsody will reward you with rich, purply-blue, 5 to 7-inch blossoms; plant it in afternoon shade and the result will be a startling, true blue. Rhapsody is defined as: Exalted or excessively enthusiastic expression of feeling. We have to agree that this clematis is exalted and excessively enthusiastic, regardless of where it grows. Rhapsody blooms on new and old wood, so little pruning is needed. Clematis require moist soils to grow well. In northern gardens the do best in full sun but prefer lightly shaded areas in southern gardens. Deer seldom bother clematis.
