This classic Clematis is a strong grower that will twine around supports or a tree with little trouble. Spring and later season blooms leave attractive seed heads for interest later in the year. Full sun will bleach out the blooms, so be sure to keep in partial sun.
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer. Provide the support of a trellis or arbor. Roots prefer a cool, shaded area, tops in the sun.
