Prolific Flowering Type 2
Clematis Piilu is noted for being one of the heaviest blooming Clematis! Two sets of flowers grace this stellar performer. Last year's stems produce 3-4" double or semi-double light pink flowers with rose bars and full centers of ruffled petals. New (later) growth blooms with large pink single flowers marked with a deep rose bar. Blooms May through July and again in September. Shorter in length, this variety is perfect for growing in containers but equally content when grown in the ground or clambering up a trellis. 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.

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 - 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. Want to sort by pruning type? In the main search box, type Type 1, Type 2 or Type 3 to group them together.
