Purpurea Plena Elegans Clematis
A Collectors' Favorite
Commonly referred to as P.P.E., this is one of the oldest cultivars there are! There's a lot to love in its performance—it's big, grows quickly, and is incredibly floriferous all summer long. Great for those just starting out with clematis, as it's durable and trains easily. The blooms are so fully double, with all sorts of recurved and twisted sepals, they look like rosettes. They're small to medium flowers, so they look intricate and stunning. While it's just fun to watch growing in the garden, it's also a favorite of collectors. It was bred by the historically important Francis Morel, and is a classic example of why we fell in love with the clematis... No wonder it won the RHS Award of Garden Merit! Resistant to clematis wilt.
