Clematis ‘Henryi’

Clematis ‘Henryi’ is a time tested favorite! Profuse, showy, eight-sepaled, 6-8″ in diameter, white flowers with purplish brown anthers cover this vine in summer. Blooms on this cultivar comes primarily from the previous year’s stems in early summer, but also occurs in a second flush later in the summer on the new (current year’s) growth. This clematis can be trained to climb a wall, trellis, fence, arbor, porch or lamppost. Can also be planted to sprawl over and through large shrubs or over old tree stumps Provides height and good architectural framework for small gardens. An excellent vine for long-lasting, often spectacular, summer bloom.

Pruning Group 2 – These cultivars produce early season bloom on the previous season’s growth and late season flowers on new growth. Generally, these cultivars are only pruned to shape. In the early spring (February or March), prune them lightly above the first pair of new swollen leaf buds, removing about 12 inches from each shoot. Also remove any dead or weak stems at this time.

General Information +

Botanical: Clematis

Common: Clematis

Family: Ranunculaceae

General Characteristics: Clematis may be planted and trained to cover walls, trellis, posts, fences, arbors or to cover rocky sites. It will need support. Prefers a rich, well-drained soil with a pH of 5.6-6.5. Clematis do best in neutral or slightly alkaline soils, but they are somewhat adaptable. If you have very acid soil, try to add some calcium when you plant. If you want to grow really good clematis you should incorporate a little lime in the planting holes. Roots should be planted in a cool moist environment, while the vine itself should be in the sun. Root area should be protected. They require 1" of water a week. Lovely, healthy, dark green foliage.

Clematis Repeat Blooming: GROUP 2: These are early double and semi-double mid-season cultivars. They bloom mid June and if healthy they will bloom again around September in a smaller show of color. These bloom on the new growth that is produced from old buds produced on stems from the previous season. If they are pruned to the ground, they will bloom, but will miss the big and beautiful early flower period. Remove dead and weak stems in February or March, leaving the best of last year's buds. Once they finish blooming, cut the plant back to 16" to encourage new growth for fall flowering.
