Sparky® Blue Clematis is one of the most diverse flowering vines around. This particular clematis is unique and one of a kind. Beautiful blue pinwheel blooms with a yellow brushstroke center will delight the most avid Clematis lovers. It is one of the earliest Spring blooming perennials around. Toothed foliage climbs heights of 72 to 96 inches where blooms can be admired overhead.

Enjoy its majestic presence growing along trellises, fences, or on decorative latticework. Design garden areas with different flowers in mind. Roses, hydrangea, and another early-blooming clematis will complement Sparky® Blue. Add a decorative trellis to a beautiful glazed container to make a stunning focal point. Not only will it bring beauty to your home, but it is reliably tough with disease resistance.

Sparky® Blue Clematis Care

Natural beauty only requires little to no maintenance. Full sun to a minimum of 6 hours sunlight is all these lovelies need. Clay soil can severely weaken or even kill clematis since clay can hinder root growth and be slow to drain. Before initially planting, amend clay soil with compost and topsoil. Apply 2 inches of mulch to keep roots moist and cool. This is particularly important in the Summer and Winter months.

This is a hardy vine that survives in zones 5 to 8. Sparky Blue is in pruning group 1. Which means there is not much to do in the way of pruning. Since this clematis blooms on old wood, it is optional to prune. If you do prune, then make sure to trim it before midsummer and no deadheading needed. 

Sparky® Blue Clematis Spacing

When planting Clematis vines next to each other, train the vines in the direction you want them to climb. Space Clematis 2 to 3 feet apart from each other. Mix and match this early blooming Spring Clematis with some other mid to later blooming varieties. Enjoy 3 seasons’ worth of diversity. You won’t be disappointed.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
