    Design IdeasThis classic Clematis is a strong grower that will twine around supports or a tree with little trouble. Spring and later season blooms leave attractive seed heads for interest later in the year. Full sun will bleach out the blooms, so be sure to keep in partial sun.

  • Care
    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: late winter or early spring: remove dead and weak shoots; prune remaining stems to 6-9 inches above a couple of well-developed buds.
    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).
