CLEMATIS

Clematis are the Kings and Queens of vines. They have a wide range of colors in

the white, pink, red, blue to purple hues. They are a wonderful addition to any garden.

Clematis requires a moist but well drained location. Up against a sunny or semi sunny wall or fence is ideal. Be sure not to plant them under the overhang as Clematis enjoy having moist feet. A good organic soil with lots of manure is perfect. Once planted their roots need to be covered with mulch. This will keep the roots cool and moist.

There are three main groups of clematis. They are grouped according to their pruning
requirements.

 

Group 1:

This group tend to flower on last year’s wood. These clematis do not require pruning only shaping or containment when they grow too big.

Group 2:

This group also flowers on old wood. Pruning of dead or weaken wood should be

Removed once the buds are breaking. Any other pruning should take place immediately after

flowering. This group should never be severely cut back.
