    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
    Water regularly during the first growing season to establish a deep extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer. Roots prefer a cool, shaded area, tops in the sun. 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).
