Clematis (Comtesse de Bouchard #1)

Availability: 10

Price: $19.00

This classic flowering vine produces masses of large blooms throughout the summer and fall. This variety has soft pink to mauve blooms.


This Type 3 clematis blooms in the summer or fall on new growth and dies to the ground over winter. In late winter, prune it nearly to the ground, leaving one healthy bud on a stem. More information about all clematis pruning types here.


Clematis come in many varieties so be sure to read up on their care - it can make an enormous difference in how the plant performs.  Some hardly bloom at all unless appropriate pruning and staking are used.


Clematis are members of the Buttercup family (Ranunculales), with about 300 different species.  They are mainly of Chinese and Japanese origin, with some varieties hardy enough to survive on the prairie.  We highly recommend either zone 2 or zone 3 clematis if you are planting them outside and leaving them there.  Some other varieties can be potted with a trellis and sheltered during the winter to keep them alive (or else treat them as annuals).  They symbolize mental beauty, and are also sometimes called Traveler's Joy.


Clematis are a climbing plant and can be trained or left on the ground to provide ground cover.  Our favorite use is to pot them with some staking / trellis and use them as deck plants.  They have a wide variety of colors and applications.
