Details

Clematis are the aristocrat of climbers; their rich hues and varied bloom times enable the gardener to have masses of bloom from spring to late fall. The blooms of the Clematis often change color, some very markedly through the life of each flower. From stunning magentas and blues, to soft pinks and bright whites; Clematis provide a broad palette of color.

Growing Tips

The first February or March after planting all clematis should be cut back. At this time, you should be able to see leaf buds developing as your plant breaks dormancy. You should leave two sets of leaf buds on each stem between where you make your cut and soil level. In subsequent years, though you don't need to prune to get nice flowering, you can get better flowering with some pruning. Different varieties fall into different groups and require different pruning methods. If unsure what group your clematis falls into there is very good information at www.homeofclematis.net. Click on "Clematis List" for a list of varieties showing what group they belong to, then click on "Pruning" to find out how to prune.
