General Information +

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.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: 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.
