Petals arch backward on hundreds of nodding purple flowers trimmed in blue in early summer. Non-vining, the new foliage flaunts bronze on the reverse. In late summer, glistening, thread-like creamy seed heads rival the beauty of the blossoms.

Because Clematis Stand by Me is non-vining, it will benefit by supplying neighboring plants or cages/stakes for support. From Walters Gardens, Hans Hansen - a cross of two non-vining species, Clematis integrifolia x fremontii. This variety will go completely dormant to the soil line; therefore no pruning is needed.

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

No pruning should be needed, but treat as a Type 2 if necessary. 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.
