Clematis for Beginners List

Early Large Flowered Clematis


Pruning Group 2 - prune after flowering as needed.

These Clematis begin flowering in late spring and early summer (mid-May - early June) on the previous year's growth. They often repeat blooming in summer on new wood. Flowers range from 15 to 25 cm in diameter and stems grow up to 2-3 m. Unfortunately the cultivars from this group can be susceptible to Clematis Wilt.
