Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CLEMATIS 'Marie Boisselot'
Clematis, Early Large-flowered Clematis, Marie Boisselot Clematis
In late summer, many huge white blooms cover this very old clematis cultivar. The tried and true ‘Marie Boisselot’ first became available in the late Nineteenth-Century (circa 1850s). It is still popular today for its reliable beauty and vigor.
Hybrid clematis is a hardy deciduous woody vine that climbs by twining stems. The vines are lined with green compound leaves, and the colorful flowers appear late in the season 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 3 clematis, which means it bears flowers on the current year’s growth and can be hard pruned.
