Flowers on both old and new wood, giving you the longest bloomtime of just about any Clematis!
Rosemoor is an absolutely stunning new Clematis with the longest bloomtime We’ve ever seen, PLUS giant flowers in a particularly rich shade of reddish-purple. If there is a showier or more exciting Clematis in the world today, I have yet to see it, and I’m delighted to be able to make Rosemoor available for your garden this season.
These flowers reach 5 to 6 inches across, suffused with long-lasting color and starred with a small, frilly yellow center. Expect them to begin in late spring and to keep coming right into fall — 5 months is typical! I’d call Rosemoor a rebloomer, but really it’s a nearly continuous show, as first the old-wood buds blossom, then the new-wood ones open! There has never been a Clematis with this kind of flower power, and I have the feeling it may transform the way we use this woody climber in the garden.
Rosemoor reaches 7 feet tall and about 6 feet wide, the ideal size for a trellis, lamppost, mailbox, or other support. It makes a fine companion to climbing Roses and open-habit shrubs such as Butterfly Bush, and its deep shade of reddish purple is ideal against blue-leafed plants. What a knockout!Like most Clematis, Rosemoor™ grows best when its roots are in shade and its tops in sun. Mulch very well around this plant to keep the soil temperature uniform, and give it something to climb. You will be rewarded with many years of glorious color! Pruning Group 1.
