Hedge Rose
Purpurea Plena Elegans Clematis

Hedge Rose is a long-lived, fast-growing shrub. It bears similar flowers to the Alberta Wild Rose. Birds will love its deep red rose hips. Hedge Rose will thrive in a wide variety of soils and is a tall rose forming a useful hedge.

Excellent for shelterbelts, ecobuffers, and wildlife habitat plantings. Continuous flowering makes it attractive to pollinators. Many song and game birds utilize this tree for food and habitat.

In use since the early 1900s, this hybrid was originally developed at the PFRA's Indian Head Agroforestry Center.

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.
