Very heavy bloomer from top to bottom with medium-sized, 3-4″ flowers bearing mauve-pink with rosy striped petals. Starts blooming in late spring and repeats mid-summer to fall. Deadhead flowers after the first wave to encourage continuous blooming. Prune weak and unwanted growth in early spring. Requires well-drained soil, shaded roots and a support structure. Grows well in alkaline and neutral soils. Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. A wonderful accent for arbors, trellises, pergolas, and small gardens. Please note the ASPCA considers clematis to be poisonous to horses, dogs, and cats.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:

water_drops_icon  These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.

About sizes of our plants:

Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
