Gardeners' Notes:

Has bloomed reliably for two years in a row though sparingly. Grown in a pot with rosa S. de la Malmaison. would probably do better planted directly inground and I may eventually transplant, but not on my to do list right now.

This clematis comes back reliably for me and blooms heavily year after year. It usually is a bit on the short side, maybe 4-5 feet on average, but here in far Northern WI (zone 3 or 4a, depending on where you look), I'm just happy it comes back at all! Year after year, by early July it is covered in beautiful, huge, double white blossoms. I just LOVE this one!

I noticed recently that, while I have buds on the old growth of my four other other clematis, there are no buds on the one-year-old stems of my Arctic Queen. There is new growth coming up from the roots, however. So, on the advice of a friend who has tons of clematis and is a master gardener, I cut off the dead stems and will train the new growth up trellis. We had a very hot month or two last summer and, although I kept it well watered, it struggled. My friend says she routinely cuts all new clematis down to a few inches of stem the first year. I hadn't intended to do this, but will see what happens. I don't know if this is common for this particular clematis and would like to hear from others.

I've had great success with this cultiver and I don't have any clematic experience.

It likes full sun and the spring weather. I don't know how it'll re-act to our hot summers.

It grows in bounds and responds very well to bloom fertilizer. The thick foliage adds a nice contrast to the snow white flowers.

In the early spring, I prune off the dead wood, above the last nodes.
