Large lilac base petals of 5" surround pom-pom centers of pink-lilac. Clematis Josephine's base petals fall away with age to leave fluffy centers. Meandering over fences, trellises, or through shrubbery clematis supplies vertical interest to any garden. Blooms June to August. Patented.
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.
