- Until fairly recently, only a handful of clematis cultivars were readily available in the U.
- Some of these traditional favorites include Jackmanii, General Sikorski, Henryi and Comtesse de Bouchard.
- But clematis have become a hugely popular perennial, and today, the average local garden center offers dozens of different choices.
When selecting a clematis for your garden, you ll want to think about a couple things, which include its mature height, flower form and color.
Harvesting: it takes between 12-36 months for clematis seeds to germinate
- Clematis vary in their need for pruning.
- Some types flower on last year s vines, so you want to avoid cutting them to the ground in the spring.
- Others flower on current-year vines, so they don t mind being cut to the ground each year.
Rather than driving yourself crazy trying to keep track of the ideal pruning technique for each cultivar, try this common-sense approach: leave the prior year s growth in place until mid-spring.
- Begin pruning only when you can see which vines are dead and which ones are starting to leaf out.
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.
No serious insect or disease problems.
