Definition of Atregene Clematis

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Paulwhwest:

Most being hardy to zones 3 or 4, Atregene Clematis are usually very tough, and accommodating, resistant to disease and not often bothered by pests. They are all deciduous and flower on old wood, and are, therefore in pruning group 1, but should be pruned back right after flowering if they become overgrown or get too large for their space. The most unique attribute of Atregene Clematis is the petal-like staminodes around the active fertile stamens. On some clematis these are no longer than the the stamens themselves, but on others they are just as long as the tepals, giving the flowers a double or semi-double appearance. Many Atregene Clematis will grow in any lighting condition, and can be grown as specimen plants, into bushes or trees, cascading down slopes and rocks, or for some types, even in containers.
