CLEMATIS 'Duchess of Edinburgh'
Clematis, Duchess of Edinburgh Clematis, Early Large-flowered Clematis
Duchess of Edinburgh clematis is a deciduous woody vine that bears large double white flowers from late spring to early summer. The vine attaches to supports via the clasping stems of its trifoliate yellow-green leaves.
Plant this clematis in full sun and fertile, cool, well-drained soil. Tie it loosely to its support until it starts to attach to it. Flower buds develop from the previous year’s growth, so confine any winter or spring pruning to dead, weak, or unwanted stems. As with most clematis, this selection adds a vertical element to the garden and looks best when trained on a fence, trellis or pergola.
