Compact, No-Hassle Purple Clematis

No pruning is necessary for this compact climber
Plant Patent #17,012. Cultivar name: 'Cleminov51'

Enjoy stunning masses of large sapphire blue flowers all summer long! 'Sapphire Indigo' makes an exotic purple-blooming groundcover shrub, but looks best climbing up a small support or trailing from a hanging basket. This beauty looks dipped in indigo ink--even the stamens are rich purple color!

This inter-specific hybrid is a cross between Cl. Integrifolia Olgae and Cl. The President. 'Sapphire Indigo' was developed for pure indigo beauty and a very compact habit. 'Sapphire Indigo' makes a fine container specimen, long, deeply-divided sepals curling back to reveal deeply dyed stamens. Blooms come on early in summer and arrive in profusion all summer long.

Clematis is easy to grow 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 a generous mulch or a shallow-rooted ground cover near the base of the vine. Very reliable performers once established, they take a season or two to get going.

'Sapphire Indigo' is an incredibly compact variety that doesn't require any pruning. This Clematis quickly reaches its mature size of 3 feet high and wide, and then stops growing.
