Dr. Ruppel Vining Clematis Plants produce very large rose-colored flowers that have a carmine-red bar down the center of each petal. The nearly 8-inch flowers appear in late-spring and will re-bloom again in 45 days if deadheaded.
Common Names: Leatherflower, Traveler’s Joy
Clematis Companion Plants: Dahlia, Phlox, Salvia
Dr. Ruppel Clematis Plant Care Instructions: Plants do best with a climbing support and with a few inches of mulch to keep their roots cool. Flowers are produced on old and new growth, so plants should not be pruned by more than one third. Pruning can be done in late winter or early spring.
