05/2022: Moved to the south easement next to our power pole.
This is one of the several clematis I’ve collected and keep moving around to find a good spot for it. It really seems to like the north side trellis but I’m going to try and move it to our fancy new fence arbor on the east side of that space and let it grow free – right now it’s competing with 2 other vines and I can barely walk under the trellis with all that greenery on it!
Group C: Blooms only on new growth. Cut back to 2 strong leaf buds on each stem, normally within 12″ of the ground.
