Plant Type: Clematis

A large flowered variety, blooms measure 6-8" in diameter. Lovely, perfectly formed, pure white flowers with purple-violet anthers. Blooms from May-June and again from July-September. Foliage is bronze when young.


Growing & Maintenance Tips:


Clematis can be grown in full sun or light shade, but its base and roots must be completely shaded. You may need to plant a small shrub or large perennial directly in front of its rootball to keep it cool and shaded. A thick layer of mulch will also help to keep the soil moist. The time to prune this group is in late winter or early spring. Dead and weak shoots should be removed and the remaining shoots cut back to 6-9 inches above a couple of well-developed buds.
