Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral JMarowelli On May 6, 2010, JMarowelli from Pittsford, MI wrote:

Plant is a vigorous grower and very well-flowered, but needs a few years to establish, as all clematis do. Does well with morning sun, and responds exceptionally well to being treated as a type-3 clem.

Personally, I find the color of this cultivator to be weak, and the blossoms tend to fade very easily, despite only getting morning sunshine here. It's not that this is a bad clem, but there are better choices with much stronger colors out there.

This is in response to Dlorah - clematis usually establish root growth the first year planted; the second year more root growth with improved top growth and some (not a lot) flowering; and the third year, watch out - all of a sudden you have a mature vine! And you go, "Wow"! Just be sure to follow the care instructions for clematis.
