General description

General description: This large-flowered clematis variety was created by Dr Ruppel himself in Argentina. It’s an early blooming, moderately vigorously growing vine with intense pink flowers. Dr Ruppel is definitely number one amongst all the two-coloured varieties. It’s an ideal clematis for beginner gardeners.


Flowers: This clematis has large, single (very occasionally semi-double) flowers that are around 15-20 cm in diameter. They are composed of 6-8 wide, pink petals with an intense magenta pink streak in the middle and light brown stamens.


Blooming: Dr Ruppel first flowers on the previous year's stems at the turn of May and June. The second blooming, on the current year’s shoots, starts in July and lasts until September.


Leaves: Dr Ruppel has light green leaves.


Cultivation requirements: This clematis does not like sunny and hot locations. It’s perfect for eastern, western, or northern exposure. It needs soil which is rich in moisture and humus with a neutral to slightly acidic pH. The substrate must be sufficiently airy and permeable (heavy, compacted clays are not suitable but sandy soils are also not advised).


Care: In autumn it is worth covering the base of the plant either with compost or decomposed, old or granulated manure, and in spring applying a mineral fertilizer is recommended. Regular generous watering is needed during the growth season (unless heavy rainfall occurs).


Pruning: Trimming a young clematis plant should not be feared – such pruning forces outward growth right from the base, and as a result the vine looks denser in later years. Dr Ruppel requires strong pruning in spring by cutting to a height of around 20-50 cm above ground. Later pruning of clematises that bloom in spring and early summer should be limited to removing dead or withered stems. Pruning the Dr Ruppel clematis is also advised after the first bout of flowering in late spring, so it has a chance to bloom again on the current year’s shoots.


Props: This clematis easily creeps up all kinds of nets, poles, hung ropes, grates and trellises, fences, pergolas and arbours. The elements of support should not exceed 1 cm in diameter. Thanks to its petioles, it can also climb up natural supports, such as deciduous and coniferous bushes and dwarf shrubs.


Overwintering: This clematis is frost resistant (in hardiness zone 4, withstanding -34°C). Protecting young seedlings for the winter is recommended, for e.g., by piling a mound of soil or peat about 30 cm in height over the plant. This clematis is a deciduous vine.


Origin: Argentina.
