One of the finest ‘blue’ clematis available, the 'Elsa Späth' is a stunning variety. This early large-flowered variety boasts a profusion of blue-purple blooms adorned with delicate violet bars and striking anthers. Perfect for larger pots, this glamorous clematis thrives when supported by elegant wigwam canes, adding a touch of allure to any outdoor space.


Clematis need their roots to be cool and their heads in the sun, so plant with roots shaded by other plants. Moreover, they will add height to the garden or provide colour to a plain background, such as a fence or wall.

  • Flowers: May-June, August-September
  • Moist, well drained soil
  • Full sun or partial shade
  • All aspects
  • Fully hardy
  • Group 2 pruning
  • As Clematis like cool roots, try to position so that the roots will be shaded from the sun by another plant. 
  • Bear in mind the space they will need to climb and provide a suitable structure - trellis, wall, fence or other plant - to climb through
  • Can be a skin irritant and harmful to pets if ingested
