How to Use Sapphire Indigo Clematis in the Landscape

Set the stage for compelling outdoor living with a layered approach to garden design. Showcase Sapphire Indigo in a vertical gardening application to make a big splash in a small space.

Train them up along wide-mesh netting for a pretty privacy screen. Include taller varieties like Regal Diamantina Clematis for greater coverage in an integrated planting.

Turn your idea of a climber upside down. Plant them along the top of a retaining wall and they'll softly cascade down for a beautifully low-maintenance garden feature.

Grow them in a series of hanging pots hooked securely along your porch or portico. Or tuck them around the edge of extra-large outdoor containers with a Baker's Blue Spruce evergreen "Thriller" for many, many years.

Clematis can also cover bare spots in your mixed border. Plant them without a support and they'll spread wide as a flowering groundcover under "leggy" shrubs and mature evergreens.

Try this variety as a special focal point in an outdoor Meditation Garden. Create a flowing "river" with a series planted as a sinuous ribbon of groundcover in a very modern garden.

Have fun and let your imagination come out and play. Use found objects to turn them into a shorter vertical accent in your mixed border.

There is nothing easier than using a tomato cage over the early spring growth. By season's end, you'll have a blooming ball that brings plenty of butterflies to visit.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Plant Clematis where their leaves receive full sun. Keep their root system cool and moist with shade and a three-inch layer of mulch. If you live in Zone 9, they'll appreciate partial shade in the afternoon.

Give them a planting site with well-drained soil, as they won't survive in standing water. There is a fine line between evenly moist soil and sopping wet soil.

For climbing plants, please install your structure before you plant Sapphire Indigo Clematis. If your support has wide struts, you'll want to first cover it with fine gauge coated wire or similar narrow support for their winding leaf stems to wrap around.

Our vining plant experts always recommend Nature Hills Root Booster with Clematis. Give their tiny feeder roots a life-long boost with symbiotic ingredients to help them access micronutrients from the soil.

Be patient with Clematis, as they focus first on root development. Apply consistent water to both in-ground and container-grown plants.

In early spring, prune down to live buds. This prolific variety blooms on new growth from the current season.

Place your order for these desirable plants. You'll feel like you live in a jewelry box with the deep blue blooms of Sapphire Indigo Clematis.
