Russian Almond
Purpurea Plena Elegans Clematis

Russian Almond is a low maintenance, short, slightly suckering shrub. It is covered with attractive, bright pink flowers in early spring before its foliage emerges.

This hardy species forms dense thickets attracts wildlife. Russian Almond prefers full sun and well-drained soils, but can tolerate moist soils.

The nuts it produces are quite attractive but very small. They are bitter and possibly toxic in large quantities.

Purpurea Plena Elegans Clematis (P.P.E) is a stunning climbing vine. The flowers are double flowers, meaning they have an inner pompom surrounded by outer petals. They are distinct dusty rose colour with a long bloom time from mid-summer to early fall. They can remain on the vine for up to three weeks. It is durable and easy to maintain and train.

One of the oldest clematis cultivars, Purpurea Plena Elegans Clematis (P.P.E) is a winner of the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

The Purpurea Plena Elegans Clematis will attract pollinators to your yard or garden attracting butterflies and hummingbirds. Because it is a climbing species, support from a trellis or fence is recommended. New vines emerge from the ground, so pruning should be done in early spring.
