Dr Ruppel Clematis

'Doctor Ruppel' Clematis produces stunning large bright pink blooms with deep carmine bars and delightful frilled edges, and attractive pale yellow and beige anthers. They flower profusely from May through to September providing a wonderful source of intense colour right the way through the season.
Take a look at our other Clematis plants.

Great for your garden:

He is happiest planted in a freely draining, fertile soil in full sun or partial shade in a nice sheltered spot. Like many clematis, his flowers tend to fade in full sun, so either dappled shade or midday shade is ideal.

This Clematis looks superb when planted against a wall or trellis, where it can complement other climbers such as roses. It can also work wonderfully growing through other trees or shrubs. They will only grow up to around 2.5 meters, so they are nice and compact making them suitable for container growing on patios or balconies.

Features

  • Flower colour: Bright pink, deep pink bars
  • Flower shape: Large, open star, overlapping frilled petals
  • Fragrance: Mild
  • Repeating: Yes
  • Approximate flowering season: May - September
  • Final height and spread: 2.5m x 1m
  • Type: Early large-flowered
  • Habit: Climber
  • Pruning group 2

Look out for:

This Clematis has no notable susceptibilities.

Trivia:

Introduced in the UK by Jim Fisk in 1975, reputedly through plants sent to him from Argentina by Doctor Ruppel himself. 

Fisk was fanatical about Clematis, and he is credited with breeding a number of well known cultivars. He was the first to exhibit Clematis at Chelsea Flower Show, and was responsible for many books on the subject which are still considered essential reading for the Clematis enthusiast.
