Gardeners' Notes:

Positive WaterCan2 On Jun 16, 2009, WaterCan2 from Eastern Long Island, NY (Zone 7a) wrote:

I have mine on a trellis in full sun, a very vigorous, reliable clematis. Pruning for type 3 every year is necessary for best blooms & health. Oddly mine likes to shift it's blooms to the setting sun & I get the most blooms in indirect sunlight, (more blooms on the side of the trellis which doesn't receive full sunlight). A stunning performer regardless, with an incredible number of blooms.

Sometimes sold as "Madame Julie Correvon." It grows in a poor patch of ground with plenty of sun exposure and gets fuller every year, both with foliage and blooms.

Deadheading promotes new blooms.

This spectacular selection was almost lost to cultivation but was rediscovered some years after its original introduction. The 2.75" flowers are rich wine-red with yellow stamens. Very floriferous yet relatively compact growth compared to most viticellas which can be rather lanky at times.
