Plant Features

Our Clematis Sapphire Indigo Plant is considered a 'dwarf' variety, though its purple (almost black) on purple coloration is BIG on grabbing attention! No pruning is needed for this compact, oh-so-charming cultivar which is not only able to climb, but which is perfectly at home ambling in and amongst taller, sturdier plants on the ground. Its low growth habit also makes an attractive ground cover.
