Clematis

Beloved Clematis, "Queen of the Climbers" create a vertical element in the garden and are ideal to cover fences, trellises, posts, pergolas or any vertical structure.

We offer both the finest new varieties and the cherished classics.

Many varieties are excellent for planting in containers.

Spectacular growing through shrubs and large roses.

We ship healthy, 2-year-old, well-rooted plants to ensure rapid establishment and success in the garden. They are in 2.06 quart/1.95 liter pots, with a support to protect their stems, from late March through November.

Recommended to be hardy in USDA Zones 4-9, except where stated.

Pruning groups are listed at the end of each description.

Growing Clematis in Pots and Containers
When space is limited, Clematis can be enjoyed as container plants, ideal for growing on patios or in a cool conservatory. Combined with colorful annuals, especially those with a trailing habit, they add height and extended ornamental appeal to container combinations. A wide range of Clematis thrive in containers. The large, early flowering, compact growing varieties are among the preferred choices. For ultimate success, use a pot 2' deep x 1½'-2' wide with appropriate drainage. Container should be raised above the ground to prevent water saturation around the base. Plant in early spring with the top of the soil ball about 2" below the soil level in the container, and water thoroughly. Most well-draining potting mixes are suitable. New growth should be trained on a wooden framework or up bamboo canes tied at the tops to create a wigwam effect. Water regularly, never allowing the potting soil to dry out. A liquid fertilizer can be incorporated from late spring through midsummer. Such treatment is important with the reblooming varieties and is necessary for the ongoing success of companion plants in the container. Remember that Clematis ideally require cool conditions for their roots and warm sunny conditions for their top growth. In areas with harsh winter weather, containers should be allowed to dry out as fall advances and stored over winter in a dry, frost-free location, such as a garage.

Polish Hybrids

Some of the world's most outstanding new hybrid Clematis originated in Poland, especially those created by master hybridizer Brother Stefan Franczak SJ. In our trial garden, they have consistently rated as outstanding performers displaying ongoing vigor and extremely heavy flower production annually. Long lasting, well-shaped blossoms are available in a wide color spectrum. In addition to their outdoor display, flowers can be enjoyed in indoor decorations.

CONTAINER PLANTING TIPS
How to Plant, Grow, and Care for Plants in Pots and Containers.

Many of our plants are great choices to grow in containers. Clematis are wonderful on patios and balconies. Miniature Hosta and dwarf evergreens can be enjoyed at close range when grown in a pot. Heuchera, Hosta, and ferns will add a leafy abundance to a container that includes annuals. Beautiful container plantings add character and interest to a setting. Here are some tips to help plants grow well in a container.

Choose a plant that is adaptable to a container. Generally most plants with a moderate to small root system will grow in a pot, some larger growing specimens, such as shade trees, large shrubs, and deep-rooted large perennials are best planted in the ground. We have many noted for "container planting" among our selections.

Select a pot that corresponds to the size and quantity of plants you have chosen. Use a quality commercial potting mix in a pot with holes to ensure good drainage. If the holes are on the bottom of the pot, use supports for a slight lift to keep them off the ground so water can flow out. Fertilize and water carefully as needed, since containers create a smaller root zone for plants.

In cold zones, consider a plant’s hardiness. Some plants will need to be moved to an enclosed area for winter, such as a garage or cold frame, and given minimal water. Some plants will survive in a sturdy wooden planter (clay pots can crack) in a sheltered location, especially if they are rated for a zone or two hardier than the zone where they are being grown. Large pots provide better root protection than small pots. For added protection pots can be wrapped in frost blankets, or plastic pots can be sunk into the ground and mulched. Protect pots from strong winds, excessive moisture, and full winter sun, which can scorch plants. Another option is to enjoy your plants for a season in a container and then approximately 6 weeks before the ground freezes remove it from the pot, plant it in the garden and mulch around the root zone. Look for additional information specifically for your hardiness zone from your nearest arboretum, public gardens, or university extension services.

Good for Cut Flowers

Enjoy fresh cut blooms right from the garden! Experiment and have fun: store-bought blooms need to withstand storage and shipping, but home gardeners can use almost any flower for bouquets.

Tips for cut flowers: Cut blooms in the cool of the day. Leave plenty of stems and foliage to nourish the plant for future growth, (cut no more than 1/3 of the plant's growth). Re-cut stems at an angle under water just before putting in a vase. Change water in the vase frequently. Pick both large and small bouquets - even a single flower adds a nice, fresh touch.

Repeat bloomers with first flowering on previous year's growth, then reblooms on the new growth. In early spring, when buds begin to swell, lightly prune if needed to shape vines. After the first bloom, give another light pruning to increase later blooms.
