Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CLEMATIS 'Edouard Desfossé'
Clematis, Early Large-flowered Clematis, Edouard Desfossé Clematis
The large flowers of ‘Edouard Desfossé’ are velvety violet-blue with darker stripes down the center of each petal/tepal. The showy blooms appear from late spring to summer on moderately vigorous vines.
Hybrid clematis is a hardy deciduous woody vine that climbs by twining stems. The vines are lined with green compound leaves that appear in spring. The large flowers appear from spring to summer and are followed by fluffy clusters of silvery seeds.
Plant this vine 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 trained on a fence, trellis or pergola.
This is a Group 2 clematis, which means its flower buds develop on the previous year's growth, so pruning should be done after it blooms.
