Clematis ‘Comtesse de Bouchard’

‘Comtesse de Bouchaud’ is a large-flowering, hybrid clematis cultivar featuring profuse, 4-6″ across, rose pink flowers with creamy yellow to white stamens. Bloom comes from the current season’s growth and appears in a long, continuous summer display. One of the most popular of the pink clematis. This vine grows best in a fertile,well-drained, alkaline soil. A choice site is key to the success of establishing this perennial; roots should be kept cool and moist. This is a vigorous, bushy plant.

‘Comtesse de Bouchaud’ can be pruned as either Group 2 or Group 3. See pruning instructions below.

Clematis is a genus of over 250 species, most of which are woody to semi-woody deciduous vines climbing by twining leaf stalks or in some cases trailing over support, but in a few cases grow as freestanding or sprawling herbaceous perennials and small deciduous or evergreen shrubs. Most have flat, cupped or bell-shaped flowers. Some plants feature ornamental fluffy seed heads in autumn. Plants bear opposite, simple to compound leaves which are usually deciduous but sometimes evergreen. Compound leaves range from lobed to trifoliate to biternate to pinnate to bipinnate. Clematis is native to both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres including Europe, the Himalayas, China, Australasia, North America and Central America.

General Information +

Use: Clematis can be trained to climb a wall, trellis, fence, arbor, porch, lamppost or other stationary structure. They provides good architectural height and framework for small gardens. They can also be planted to sprawl over and through shrubs, scramble over old stumps or simply as a ground cover in conjunction with other flowering perennials. Containers.

Clematis Repeat Blooming: Group 2 – Flowers on both old and new wood. Typically, little pruning should be done for woody-stemmed members of this Group. If cut to the ground or pruned in fall or spring, flowering will be reduced or delayed but not prevented. Group 3 – Flowers only on new wood. Can be cut to the ground in fall or spring.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Grow in fertile, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Plant in the spring, when the soil is workable. Vining hybrids are best sited in locations where the flowering parts of the vine are in sun to part shade but the roots are shaded. Some light afternoon shade is usually beneficial in hot and humid summer climates. Clematis vines need a trellis or other support on which to grow. Roots should be kept cool, shaded and uniformly moist. Root areas may be shaded with perennials, annuals or small shrubs. A thick root mulch is appreciated. Do not allow soils to dry out.

Pests or Diseases: No serious insect or disease problems. Susceptible to wilt/stem rot (can be fatal), powdery mildew, leaf spots, rust and viruses. Potential insect pests include aphids, vine weevils, slugs/snails, scale and earwigs. Watch for spider mites. Deer Resistant and Resistant to Walnut Toxicity, Aphids, Clematis Borer, Stem Rot and Slugs
