Other Late Small Flowered Clematis

Integrifolias including Diversifolias

Pruning Group 3 - hard prune in early spring.

This group comprises cultivars originating from Clematis Integrifolia. These are non-climbing plants that scramble through other plants such as shrubs, leaning on or against their supports, growing through perennials, bushes or small trees. They can be used very successfully as ground cover. The plants listed below may grow to 2 - 3 metres. Flowers are borne on new wood from mid to late summer and into autumn (between June and October). As perennials, they die out to the ground, and therefore have to be cut back at ground level in spring.

Most named cultivars of these groups are easy to grow.
