Description

Clematis Jolly Good™ is a showy, perennial, late-flowering clematis offering summer interest, blooming heavily in midsummer and repeat blooming to early fall. Free flowering, the plant sets abundant light purple flowers with magenta undertones and creamy white stamens. Plants bloom on new wood and attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

Clematis Jolly Good™, a deciduous climbing vine, has a vigorous, compact, vining habit of relatively small, bright green leaves that stay fresh and attractive all season. There is an old saying about clematis' growth rate: The first year they sleep, the second year they creep, and the third year they leap. Train clematis to climb a trellis, arbor, post, or fence, adding vertical interest. Or allow it to amble along the ground, meandering gracefully through the shrubbery. But for something really special, pair it with a climbing rose, allowing the nimble clematis to twine its way around the sturdy rose stalks. The two will elegantly mingle blooms in the early season, but the clematis will carry it through the heat of summer and the rose will pick up again in fall as the clematis' blooms fade.

Very easy to grow and disease resistant, Clematis Jolly Good™ prefers cool, moist, well-drained soil and full sun to part shade. Good site selection is key. So, remember the adage for success with clematis when planting: feet in the shade, head in the sun. The plant should be placed where the leaves get plenty of sunshine (approx. 6 hours), but the roots are shaded and kept cool, either by low-growing, evergreen shrubs or by heavy mulch. Good drainage is important and extremely wet locations should be avoided. Protect plants from strong winds but allow good air circulation.

A Group 3 late-flowering clematis (Blooms on new wood in the summer and fall; dies to the ground over winter), Clematis Jolly Good™ should be pruned hard before new growth appears in late winter to remove dead or weak, spindly stems and to make way for the new growth. Cut back to 2 feet or just above pairs of healthy, swelling leaf buds. If training to climb, loosely tie the vines to their structure at this time. It can be pruned again after the first flush of flowers in early summer, cutting back to large buds, to promote a second flush of flowers, but deadheading is unnecessary. This group has to re-grow to their mature size each summer, so they tend to be the last to flower.
