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.
Lore Clematis breeding began in France due to the first early Asian hybrids arriving there from Jesuit missionaries stationed in China before any other westerners entered the country.
