    Design IdeasMaturing to only six to eight feet high, this smaller Clematis is excellent in a container by a trellis or taller plant for support, but remember to keep it well watered. Light pruning will keep it in shape for its first flush of blooms in early summer and subsequent blooming into autumn.

    Care Information
    Provide enriched, well-drained soil. Roots prefer a cool, shaded area, tops in the sun. Mulch to conserve soil moisture. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer in spring; repeat after first bloom flush. Support with trellis or arbor.Pruning time: spring after flowering.
    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).
