Boulevard Sarah Elizabeth clematis is one of the larger clematis in the Boulevard series, and it’s big on personality, too! The soft pink sepals have ruffled edges that lend a distinctive texture to the alluring flowers. Burgundy stamens entice pollinators to its beneficial nectar at the center. These fabulous pink flowers bloom from spring until early summer, providing a long-lasting source of nectar to your local bees and butterflies.
Like other Boulevard clematis varieties, Sarah Elizabeth is a fabulous choice for dramatic container plantings. It will act as a tall “thriller” when planted with a trellis, or an extravagant “spiller” when left to cascade over the edge of the container. Sarah Elizabeth looks lovely when planted in the ground, and will prove to be a dependable perennial in Zones 4-9.
Boulevard Sarah Elizabeth Clematis Care
Plant Sarah Elizabeth in a place where the root system will receive some shade, and the stems and leaves receive healthy amounts of sunshine. Mulch the ground with a thick layer of wood mulch to retain soil moisture and temperature, and pull the mulch away from the stem. Plant in well-draining soil, and keep the plant consistently waterered. Fertilize annually in spring.
Early-spring pruning is ideal for Sarah Elizabeth clematis, because it is in pruning group 3, which means it blooms on new wood. Prune down to the healthy buds about a foot off the ground. Leave those buds to make the first batch of luminous blooms!
Boulevard Sarah Elizabeth Clematis Spacing
This is a larger compact variety, with a mature height of up to 5’, and a mature spread of up to 4’. If planting in a container, make sure it is large enough to support growth. Allow 3-4’ of space in gardens.
