Compact free flowering, a good selection for shade, as flowers retain their color best in shade. Elegant white flowers are tinged in lilac becoming darker at the ruffled edges. Stunning dark anthers. Blooms June, July and again in late August. Flowers are 5 - 8" across. Height 8-10'. Pruning type 2.
Clematis are prized for their large, showy flowers. "Queen of the Climbers" will train onto trellises, fences, or arch over doorways. Stunning when used alone or when several colors are mixed. Grower's tip: Truest colors require full sun, as any shade will introduce purple tones. Flower color and bloom size may vary while the plant is establishing.
Pruning Type 2 - In this group all first flowering comes from last season's ripening stems. In early Spring watch for swelling leaf buds beginning to show. Cut all dead material off above these swelling buds. Be sure all growth is tied to the trellis, etc. at this time. Do not tie too tightly, so growth will not be hampered or cracked by tying too tight.
