Clematis Purpurea Plena Elegans, Clematis viticella 'Purpurea Plena Elegans', has double reddish-purple 3" flowers that bloom profusely throughout the season.

This elegant variety is very carefree and disease resistant. It thrives in full sun, but will grow in almost any location.  It was awarded Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit!

'Purpurea Plena Elegans' needs a supporting structure to grow properly. Clematis Purpurea Plena Elegans 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 generous mulch or a shallow-rooted ground cover near the base of the vine.

Prune lightly above the new leaf buds in early spring and remove any dead or weak stems.  Varieties within this group flower on the new season's growth.

Clematis Purpurea Plena Elegans needs a supporting structure to grow properly but will also grow over large shrubs, over walls, cover stumps, and make perfect cover ups for unsightly service areas.

Clematis is easy to grow in a rich, porous, alkaline soil with plenty of room for the roots to spread.

It is a very reliable performer once established; it takes a season or two to get going!  A vigorous grower, Clematis Purpurea Plena Elegans is excellent for growing through shrubs; makes a great cut flower!
