Amelia Clematis, Clematis
This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
The upright-growing, non-vining ‘Amelia’ produces 3-inch-wide (8 cm) flowers in late summer to early fall. The six-petaled blossoms are a pale pink-lavender and surround a bright yellow crown of stamens.
This hybrid clematis is a hardy deciduous woody vine that doesn't really climb and clasp in a traditional sense but grows upright. The stems are lined with green compound leaves that appear in spring. The large flowers appear from summer to fall and are followed by fluffy clusters of silvery seeds.
Plant the Amelia clematis in sites with full sun and fertile, well-drained soil. It grows and flowers best if its roots remain cool under a vegetative layer or thick mulch. As with most clematis, this selection adds a vertical element to the garden and looks best when supported with a stake, trellis or among nearby border plants to prevent flopping.
Amelia clematis is a Group 3 type, which means it bears flowers on the current year’s growth and may be pruned back hard. Alternatively, allow winter cold to kill back the plant to the ground and let it rejuvenate each spring.
