This beauty bears large 5-7 glistening white semi-double flowers with rose pink bars in late spring followed by a round of single flowers in late summer on rapidly growing stems. Clematis Andromeda bears showy seed heads for added interest in fall. Prune dead stem tips (only) in early spring to allow old wood to bloom.

Gracefully meandering over fences, trellises or through shrubbery, clematis supplies vertical interest. Every perennial garden should have at least one of these incredible vines.

Note: because we are trimming the plants to keep them in bounds here at Bluestone, the first flowers you see will be singles from the new growth.

Features to Note:

  • Blooms for 4 Weeks or More
  • Attracts Butterflies
  • OK in Containers
  • Beneficial for Pollinators

Clematis General Information:

Clematis are prized for their incredible flowers, most as large as your hand. "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.

Clematis Plant Care:

Pruning Type 2 - Flowers are produced on last year's growth, but pruning is recommended. In early spring watch for swelling leaf buds beginning to show. Cut all dead material off above these swelling buds. Also, loosely train/tie the vines to their trellis at this time also. If intertwining Clematis, pruning will be easier if you select varieties with the same pruning type.
