Product Overview

Like crushed velvet, the huge midnight red blooms of 'Niobe glow with rich color, brilliantly offset by a slender, prominent center of bright yellow. Simply the best red clematis we know, 'Niobe blooms over a long summer season on compact, manageable 6 ft. Vines. Just the right size for the mailbox, pillar, or container of any type, 'Niobe dazzles from the moment the buds open--the blooms are initially nearly black, then mature to deep ruby. Unforgettable.

2 gal. Niobe Clematis Plant is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great plant for specific conditions This Clematis is a great plant for a sunny area with something to climb, but it will need shad on it's roots. So, this is the type of thing you'd plant behind a shrub. When they're happy, they produce swaths of flowers on lovely vines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase! Plant arrived timely, is a healthy plant, in very good shape and a great value on the for the money. I shopped the Niobe Clematis on multiple websites and this defnitely was the best bang fot the buck. I was a little worried about ordering plants online from Home Depot, however, it arrived in very good condition and was a nice size. I planted it and in two days had a bloom on on it. It's only been planted a couple of weeks, but seems to be doing very well. I would recommend to anyone.
