PURPLE CLEMATIS PICTURE

Purple Clematis picture.
 


This purple clematis picture was taken at a friend's home. Clematis is one of the most beautiful climbing vines. I've seen them climbing on arbors, fences and trellises. One tip, I've heard a lot is to keep the roots protected from the sun with mulch. The flowers will benefit the best in a full sun location.

Plant Type - vining perennial Light - full sun
Zones - 4 to 9 Size - 6' to 25'
Bloom Time - group 1 (A) spring
                   group 2 (B) summer & fall
                   group 3 (C) summer
Tips - Keep roots protected with mulch
        Use thin wire mesh for support
        Prune by group type
Pruning - group 1 (A) If necessary prune lightly after flowering and remove dead vines.
              group 2 (B) Trim back lightly in late winter or early spring.
              group 3 (C) Cut back to 6" to 12" above soil level in late winter.

Note - You don't have to prune your clematis but pruning will make your plant healthier
          and give you more blooms each year. When you purchase your clematis you
          should make note of what group it is in so you can take better care of the plant.
