Description / Clematis 'Henryi'

Clematis 'Henryi', a treasured English variety since the late 1800s, exemplifies timeless elegance in the garden with its large, pure white flowers that create a stunning display from late spring through to late summer. This perennial, large-flowered clematis is celebrated for its vigorous growth and ability to produce a lavish first wave of snow-white blooms in late spring and early summer, followed by a secondary flourish on the current year's growth in late summer and early fall. The star-shaped, creamy white blooms, measuring 6 to 8 inches across, feature a striking center of purplish-brown anthers, attracting a lively gathering of bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, creating a pollinator paradise.

As a deciduous climbing vine, 'Henryi' showcases a twining and trailing habit with large, thick leaves that remain vibrant and fresh throughout the season. It thrives when trained to climb trellises, arbors, posts, or fences, adding a vertical element of beauty, or when allowed to gracefully meander through garden shrubbery. For a truly captivating garden feature, pair 'Henryi' with a climbing roses for an elegant interplay of blooms through the seasons.

Clematis 'Henryi' is renowned for its cold hardiness, ease of growth, and disease resistance. It prefers a planting site that offers full sun to part shade, cool, moist, well-drained soil, and protection from strong winds. Embrace the gardening adage, "feet in the shade, head in the sun," by ensuring the roots are cool and shaded, ideally with low-growing shrubs or a thick layer of mulch, while the foliage enjoys ample sunlight. This variety is also deer resistant and black walnut resistant, making it a versatile addition to diverse garden settings.

As part of Group 2 large-flowered clematis, which includes rebloomers that produce flowers on both old and new wood, 'Henryi' benefits from moderate pruning in late winter or early spring. This maintenance encourages vibrant new growth and maximizes the display of its stunning white blooms from the previous seasons' growth.

Large flowers compared to the other varieties.
Review by CGardener
Large, long-lasting flowers. Looks very pretty in the moonlight! Not many blooms the first year, bit it really took off after the second winter. Blooms a little later, after the Piilu clematis that I also have in my garden.
