36-48" tall x 36-48" wide. Although ‘Sapphire Indigo’ can be allowed to wander through the mixed border, it is fascinating to watch it mounding on its own – bringing out the best in its heritage: large violet flowers and soft arching foliage. As with most clematis, it prefers moist, rich soil, but it will slowly shade its own roots without any help from other perennials. ‘Sapphire Indigo’ is an exceptional bloomer, flowering from late spring till early fall, and its anthers pick up the indigo color for which it’s named, adding another layer of interest when individual flowers fade. Consider siting it near gray-foliaged perennials or shrubs to make the most of its deep purple blooms, but make sure they can stand up to the heavier nature of this floriferous, shrub-like clematis when it decides to get friendly.
