Culture Notes

This clematis will grow best in full sun or light to open shade. Provide a location with rich well-drained soil where it can be regularly watered during dry weather. Plant vines that are well rooted and at least two years old. In our climate planting too deeply can smother the roots. Set young plants at the same depth they were in their nursery pots. Clematis are heavy feeders and appreciate fertilizing in spring. This clematis blooms on new growth so it is best to prune in winter. Remove congested or tangled growth and thin to the strongest stems. Well established plants can be cut back to 12 inches tall in winter to remove large tangles, allowing robust new stems to fill out the plant.
