Clematis Josephine Description
NEW! Over 50+ blooms of full, double pink adorn this vigorous reblooming Flowering Vine!
Josephine takes Clematis to a new level with her large 5" double flowers of soft pink from early summer and again in mid fall.
Each flower is a study in art. As the outer petals drop away, the blooms begin to resemble pink pompoms and can last for more than 3 weeks on this vigorous vine!
This hardy perennial comes via a home gardener in England who bought this as an unnamed selection. She then shared the plant with Clematis guru Raymond Evison, who then exhibited it at Chelsea in 1998!
Train Clematis up fences or posts or allow to twine through host plants such as Shrubs, Hedge Plants or Knock Out Roses.

Ideas and How-to's
Recommended for You:
Soil: Clematis prefer rich, organic soil (no heavy clay) that is slightly alkaline. Additional limestone is not necessary unless a soil test reveals a pH less than 6.
Light: Full sun to part shade. Clematis like to keep their roots cool, so a 2-4 inch layer of mulch is advised once the soil warms up during the hot summer months. To prevent stem rot, be sure to keep the mulch well away from the base of the vine.
Spacing: 5 feet
Fertilizing: Fertilize your plant once a year in the spring, right after pruning or tidying up.
Winterizing: If you have mulched during the growing season, no special added care is needed.
Maintenance & Pruning: Allow the plant to grow with no pruning through its first blooming season. Blooms on new growth, so once established, you can prune hard in fall after flowering or in early spring. Cut the vines back to 12 to 18 inches from the ground in February to ensure a strong flower production the next summer.
