Growing and Maintenance Tips

This Clematis flowers first from last season's ripening stems. In early Spring watch for swelling leaf buds beginning to show. Cut all dead material off above these swelling buds. Be sure all growth is tied to the trellis. It is also recommended to plant it at least 5- 8 cm deeper then it is growing in the pot to encourage the formation of additional roots from the plant stem.
