Clematis ‘H.F. Young’

‘H.F. Young’ has huge, 6-9″ blossoms. This cultivar has single, soft blue and violet saucer-shaped blooms with cream anthers, a deciduous, compact climber belonging to AHS group B. Large, wide, early summer flowers are borne on side-shoots growing from last year’s shoots. Additional blooms may be borne on the tips of the present year’s growth. Leaves are divided into 3 widely or regularly lance-shaped leaflets, 4 to 6 inches long. Beautiful along fences and arbors. Part shade is preferable. 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.

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, Australia, North America, and Central America.
