This rare and unique clematis gives off a whole new look! Instead of growing as a vine like most clematis, this one grows into a shrub! It has adorable blue bell flowers that begin to bloom in May with rebloom in late summer. The Stand by Me Clematis Bush brings pollinators to your yard and is resistant to rabbits and deer.

The blooms that first appear in the late spring are blue and bell shaped. This one does rebloom in the late summer as well. Once blooming is finished, creamy thread like seed heads are left. The foliage is green and a perfect match for this perennial. The Stand by Me Clematis Bush grows to be a height of thirty-four to thirty-eight inches. The spread can reach up to thirty-six inches. It can be planted as a focal point, as a border plant, it will do well in mass planting, and it makes for wonderful cut flowers.

Stand by Me Clematis Bush Care

Be sure to plant in full sun, however it will tolerate some light shade. Soil needs to be well drained and slightly alkaline. The Stand by Me Clematis Bush has average water needs but is not picky about soil type. Roots should stay shaded. Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the plant to help keep soil moist. Fertilizer should be applied in the spring. Pruning should be done in the late winter or early spring as this clematis is in the group 3 pruning type. The Stand by Me Clematis Bush is completely herbaceous and non-vining, but it does benefit from staking, neighboring plants or caging for additional support.

Stand by Me Clematis Bush Spacing

The Stand by Me Clematis Bush grows to be thirty-four to thirty-eight inches tall. Be sure to space at least 24 inches apart, center on center. Spacing properly ensures your plant develops correctly, receives enough sunlight and flourishes.

    Plants arrived in perfect...

    Posted by Customer on Jun 13th 2021

    Delivery guy couldn’t read, so he left the box upside-down despite large print on it re: leaving it right side up. But the plants were so well packed, that they were fine. I can’t really review in full, because they’re seedlings, but they were planted same day and are smiling while they grow. Thanks Plant Addicts!

    Above and Beyond...

    Posted by Scarlet Lutz on Jun 7th 2020

    This was my first time ordering from plant addicts. I ordered a couple of plants for my mother in law who lives 36 hours away. I completed my order just a few days before Mother’s Day so I was late. Plant Addicts went above and beyond by sending an e-mail to my mother-in-law with photos of the plants I ordered for her wishing her a happy Mother’s Day. Service like this goes above and beyond a basic order. The plants arrived and they were beautiful!! She loved them! Thank you for helping make me look good to my mother-in-law and keeping the hubby happy! Everything was a win with the beautiful gift!
