Clematis 'Niobe', often referred to as the deep ruby-red clematis, stands out as a breathtaking variety that promises to infuse any garden with beauty and drama. Boasting large, velvety flowers accompanied by elegant sepals, this plant is nothing short of a botanical masterpiece.
A vigorous grower, Clematis 'Niobe' flourishes with profuse blooms from late spring through to late summer. While it's relatively low-maintenance, it does benefit with a climbing support and a layer of mulch to maintain moist, cool roots.
Perfect for companion planting, it pairs well with other flowers like Dahlias, Phlox, and Salvia. It can also be beautifully combined with other clematis varieties, including Clematis 'Jackmanii' and Clematis 'Montana'.
For those seeking a stunning and adaptable addition to their garden, Clematis 'Niobe' is a top choice, guaranteeing an air of elegance and charm in any outdoor setting.
Plant Care: Flowers are produced on new growth only, so plants can be pruned back 12-16 inches after each round of flowers are done and should also be pruned back hard in early spring before the new growth begins.
