Interesting Notes:

Due to the many types available, Clematis are grouped into one of three categories for pruning and maintenance:

Group 3: Late Flowering - Flowers form on the terminal 60-90 cm of the current season's growth.  Some bloom as early as midsummer and continue into the fall.  In early spring, prune each stem, leaving the lowest 2-3 buds.  The new growth can be tipped back when it reaches about 30 cm to induce better branching and more plentiful flowers.

Sweet Autumn Clematis Growing and Maintenance Tips

Clematis prefer rich, moist to average, well-drained soil in full sun.  Protection from the intense afternoon sun is beneficial. Large flowering bi-colours, reds, and blues may fade quickly if planted in direct sun. Roots need a cool environment to thrive, so it is recommended to plant a groundcover or shallow-rooted perennial to shade the roots; mulching is suggested. Plant the crown 3-5 cm below soil surface. Clematis are slow to establish.  Plants will need to be tied to a trellis or fence initially to begin climbing.
