    Design IdeasThis unique Clematis is a prolific bloomer that's great to train up onto low fences or small arbors. Plant to cascade down small slopes or dangle off retaining walls like a groundcover. Allow to spill out of large tubs for a casual, cottage garden feel. Pair with climbing roses for a fantastic color display over an extended season.

  • Care
    Care Information
    Provide well-drained soil, with roots sheltered and top growth in the sun. Mulch soil surface to conserve moisture. Water regularly during first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system; requires less frequent watering when established. Feed when new growth begins in spring. Provide trellis or arbor support. Prune hard in early spring.
    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).
