Clematis integrifolia ‘Blue Ribbons’ Integrifolia Group

Blue Ribbons clematis

Outstanding Qualities

'Blue Ribbons' is a seed strain of Clematis integrifolia with nodding, urn-shaped, purple flowers in early summer on very short stems reaching only 12 to 16 inches (30-40cm) tall. This non-vining clematis is more perennial-like and, generally, the stems are stout enough to stand up alone unless heavy rainfall or winds are a characteristic of the area or if overhead watering is used; if that is the case, then support by a sturdy perennial or wire structure could be helpful. A container is also a great place to use this clematis.

Culture Notes

Plant in full sun for best flowering, although this clematis will tolerate light to open shade. The soil should be rich and well-drained. Water at least twice a week during the dry season. Cut the stems back to 4 to 6 inches (10-15cm) in late winter.
