Hello, I am The President Clematis, and I most likely was given my title of honor because I am one of the longest blooming flowering vines that you can plant in your garden. You can be sure that my rich purple star shaped flowers will be grabbing second looks in your garden from early summer, all the way to the first frost of autumn. I am low maintenance, tolerant of urban pollution and will thrive in any type of soil - my only request is that my soil is well drained - I tend to be a little dramatic about this, and will not tolerate standing water. My perfect home must be in full sunlight, and preferably near a fence or other structure that can help guide my upwards growing habit - even The President needs a little help sometimes!

Care Guide

  • Watering: The President Clematis requires consistent moisture, but not waterlogged soil. Water the plant deeply once a week during the growing season, more frequently during hot, dry weather.
  • Maintenance: The President Clematis needs support for its twining stems, such as a trellis, fence, or arbor.
  • Pruning: In-season Pruning, The President Clematis blooms on new growth, so prune it back in late winter or early spring before new growth begins. Cut back last year's growth to two or three buds above the ground or to a strong set of lateral buds. End-of-season Pruning, in late fall, after the plant has finished blooming, prune back any remaining stems to the base. This will help prevent disease and encourage healthy new growth in the spring.
  • (Optional):Fertilize in early spring and again in mid-summer. Use a fertilizer with an NPK ratio of 10-10-10 or 12-12-12, or one specifically formulated for flowering plants.
