This classic flowering vine produces masses of large blooms throughout the summer and fall. This variety is loved for deep purple blooms adorned with red stamens.
This clematis pruning type is Type 2. Type 2 clematis bloom in late spring on old wood and again in late summer on new wood. Prune them lightly in early spring before blooming, removing dead wood and cutting back just a little bit but leaving the buds. Find out more about all pruning types here.
