General Description

The dark blood-red (or violet-red) flowers of the Avante-Garde clematis are gloriously contrasted by a central tuft of pink stamens in their centers. The high number of stamens creates the illusion of a double-form blossom. This cultivar was selected by Raymond Evison and Mogens Olesen in their British Channel Islands garden in the summer of 1996.

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 colorful flowers appear all 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.

Avante-Garde 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.
