|Design Ideas||The large, bold pink flowers make this plant a must for high traffic areas such as walkways, patios and fence lines that are viewing distance from the home. Train onto a trellis or arbor, or allow to sprawl freely on the ground for a more naturalistic woodland look. Add a decorative iron trellis to a container and feature Asao Clematis as the centerpiece in a mixed perennial container garden.|

|Care||Thrives in well-drained, slightly alkaline soil, with roots sheltered and top growth in the sun. Mulch soil surface to conserve moisture. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Blooms on old wood. Prune lightly after flowering to promote repeat bloom.|
|Lore||The American Clematis Society recognized C. Asao in their Top Ten Clematis for 1997.|
