Bloomed their first season

I planted three of these from Wayside. They bloomed the first season and climbed right up a fence in a pretty shady location.

Hardy, Prolific Clematis
TMarie from TX wrote on June 19, 2018

I've had my heirloom clematis from Wayside for about 10 years. It's a foundation planting on the South side of the house in North Texas (Zone 7). This clematis delivers year after year with a mass of soft purple nodding bells in spring. It continues to bloom summer (lightly here because of 100+ temps) and then more blooms in the fall when it cools off some. No fragrance to mention. It's a very dense vine and needs to be on a very sturdy support. We have high wind and I have had to replace my supports twice because they bend completely over. I figured out the secret is to prune it all the way back to main trunks each January. Be patient. It did take a couple of years to establish enough for lots of blooms.

Love how quickly it grows in the spring. Heavy bloomer at first then lesser during the whole summer! I cut it back ever spring. Handles the cold NH weather.
