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. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Clematis Plant Care

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. If intertwining Clematis, pruning will be easier if you select varieties with the same pruning type. Want to sort by pruning type? In the main search box, type Type 1, Type 2 or Type 3 to group them together.
