Clematis Niobe has prominent dark red flowers that are 5" to 6" across! It is a heavy bloomer from late spring to late summer. This clematis is considered to be one of the best reds on the market with its velvety petals and vigorous growing habit. Award of Garden Merit (AGM) in 1993. Clematis Niobe was developed by Wladyslaw Noll in Poland in the 1970s and has become a favorite large flowered hybrid clematis all over the world. Niobe has the curious trait of behaving like a type 3 pruning group clematis when hard pruned. That is, it will delay blooming if hard-pruned instead of being lightly pruned as usual (for type 2). The colors of Clematis Niobe is often described as being garnet rather than red. As with any plant, the flowers will be affected by climate and site as well as time of year. In general, Niobe should be considered a solid performer and an asset to any garden. We have grown it in the ground and containers where it has grown quite well and flowered even when in lower light conditions.

    The velvet shen of the petals is great! This plant stays short for me; shorter than the description suggests. (Posted on 12/8/14)

All of our Clematis are grown right here at our nursery in north Georgia. Most plants are grown from cuttings, not seed (except where noted), and none are grafted. This assures that you will get a healthy plant that is true to name. 

Each plant will be fully rooted in a true quart size pot with a label and 18" stake as pictured. When your plants arrive, you'll find them packed carefully with natural materials and individually wrapped. The stake is used to protect the plant in transit and may be removed when planting.

We grow many different varieties of Clematis and they will not all look the same when they arrive. Some varieties have small leaves and many branches at this size. Others, like the large-flowered hybrids, may only have a few sets of leaves due to their habit of growth. We prune our plants regularly for their health here at the nursery and to promote branching in the garden so occasionally some plants may be shorter than others when they arrive. This will not affect their ability to adapt to their new home in your garden.
