CLEMATIS 'Comtesse de Bouchaud'
Clematis, Comtesse de Bouchard Clematis, Late Large-flowered Clematis
Comtesse de Bouchaud clematis is a deciduous woody vine that bears many flowers late in the season. From summer to early autumn, large mauve-pink flowers appear along twining stems covered with medium green leaves. This clematis grows best in sites with full sun and fertile, well drained soil. Flower buds develop from the previous year's growth, so pruning should be done after plants bloom. If left unpruned, plants will sporadically flower again in fall. As with most clematis, this selection adds a vertical element to the garden and looks best when trained on a fence, trellis or pergola.
