Clematis x 'Multi-blue'
|Description||A free-flowering, compact selection with large, double, lavender-blue blooms. A first flush of flowers is followed by a second flush in late summer. Train on an arbor, fence or trellis, or leave unsupported and allow to climb through medium-sized shrubs. An excellent choice for patios and small spaces. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Water deeply when top inch of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Early summer, repeating late summer to fall.|
|Mature Size||Twining stems quickly climb 6 to 8 ft. tall, with support.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Espalier, Ground Cover|
|Design Ideas||Maturing 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.|
|Companion Plants||Japanese Maple (Acer); Rose (Rosa); Daylily (Hemerocallis); Hydrangea (Hydrangea); Butterfly Bush (Buddleja)|
|Care||Thrives in well-drained, lightly alkaline soil, with roots sheltered and top growth in the sun. Mulch to conserve moisture. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed regularly beginning in spring. Prune spent flowers to promote repeat bloom. Provide trellis or arbor support.|
