Vancouver Danielle is an early blooming clematis! It has exceptionally large, brilliant violet-blue flowers with a striking reddish bar through the petal centers and red-tipped stamens. With its compact habit, it is ideal for containers or smaller gardens. Like all clematis, it can be used in a variety of different garden and landscape scenarios. Vancouver™ Danielle is touted for its resistance to pests/diseases. All parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested.
Flowers are attractive to butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds.
This Clematis thrives in well-drained, lightly alkaline soil, with roots sheltered and top growth in the sun. Bark mulch will help conserve moisture. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish the root system. Fertilize regularly beginning in spring. Pruning time: late winter or early spring. Prune spent flowers to promote repeat bloom and to stimulate a large flush of new growth. Type 2/Group B pruning – flowers on new and old wood.
Clematis in general have no known serious issues.
Most plants can be prone to common, ornamental (non-lethal) issues caused by various environmental conditions. Clematis may be susceptible to wilt/stem rot (potentially fatal), powdery mildew, leaf spots, rust, and viruses. Potential insect pests include aphids, vine weevils, slugs, snails, scale, and earwigs. Watch for spider mites. Alleviate these common issues with over-the-counter insecticides or pesticides.
This clematis has a free-flowering compact habit that is ideal for container gardening and is highly disease resistant. This relatively low maintenance plant can live upwards of 20 years. All parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested and handling may cause skin irritation or an allergic reaction. Originated at Clearview Nursery in British Columbia.
Japanese Maple, Climbing Rose, Daylily, Hydrangea, Butterfly Bush. Japanese Maple (foliage color often compliments flower color, most Clematis are native to Japan and this combination is often grown naturally together). Climbing Rose (flower texture and colors add contrast to the Clematis flowers while maintaining a similar foliage, this is not a plant we sell). Hydrangea (can help fill in the bottom when the vine matures upwards). Butterfly Bush (an additional source of color and also attracts pollinators, while filling in the bottom when Clematis begins to mature upwards)
