(aka: Clematis 'Cleminov 51') Clematis 'Sapphire Indigo' is an amazing new clematis hybrid from French plant breeder Laurence Arene-Querard (say that three times fast), whose goal was to cross bush clematis with large-flowering vining clematis. Clematis 'Sapphire Indigo' has been amazing in our trials, flowering consistently from late spring to early fall with 4" recurved petal, dark purple flowers. Clematis 'Sapphire Indigo' is a cross of the non-vining Clematis x diversifolia (C. integrifolia x C. viticella 'Olgae') and the vining Clematis 'The President'. Clematis 'Sapphire Indigo' is a well-behaved mingler with other perennials but, when left alone, forms an 18" tall x 3' wide mound of 2' long arching stems. We're making the illegally used trademark the cultivar name, since Cleminov 51 isn't a real word and trademark law obviously went unread.
