Clematis Arabella belongs to the Integrifolia group of Clematis genus. It is a semi-herbaceous hard perennial that features one of the most beautiful Clematis flowers.
Arabella flourishes in the summer and autumn seasons, blooming deep blue-mauve flowers (7.5cm - 9cm in diameter) that attract butterflies and hummingbirds.
As a plant of excellence, it needs low maintenance and still bewilders the minds of its viewers. It is hardy and easy to grow. Unlike other Clematis plants, Arabella is not a climber. It does not twist around objects, fences or other plants. It needs other shrubs or trees to be planted around it for support.
Arabella can be planted in moist but well-drained soil, otherwise the roots will rot. It grows well in chalky or clay soil with a monthly feed to nourish the plant health. Even though the top of this Clematis will demand 6 hours of exposed or sheltered sunlight, the bottom will prefer shade and cold.
Clematis Arabella blooms heavily throughout the summer, in fact it is one of the longest blooming Clematis. The flowers reveal masses of blue petals, curling along the edges with tufts of white stamens. This mesmerizing combination of colours and shades sets it apart from regular Clematis.
It is light-weight and can be grown atop other plants. Use Clematis Arabella as flowering ground cover or wall side borders in your cottage garden and experience the fresh aura it creates.
