This was the very first clematis cultivar that I bought and it has proven a good investment. I never prune it and it gets loaded with blossoms at least twice a year.

This Clematis was here when I moved in to this house, and it thrives with little attention from me. Gorgeous, large lt-med pink blooms, good growth rate. Just prune back hard late winter/early spring, and give a good feed of alfalfa pellets and a nice compost mulch in spring when it starts to push good growth, make sure it gets good water in really hot weather, and then just enjoy those blooms...:) I really like its dependable long flowering nature and it is not at all fussy!! LOVELY

I bought this plant in one of those multi-packs from K-mart. The crowns were the size of a spool of thread. I was in my gardening infancy so I planted them and forgot about them. About 3-4 years later I had big "unknown" lavender clematis growing! And they have thrived ever since! Pretty pinkish-lavender blossoms fading to white. Prune C (early spring- cut hard to strong buds 9-18" from ground).
