Botanical Name

CLEMATIS 'Marie Louise Jensen' PPAF

Plant Common Name

Clematis, Early Large-flowered Clematis, Marie Louise Jensen Clematis

General Description

From late spring to early summer, enormous, double violet-blue flowers cover ‘Marie Louise Jensen.’ This long-blooming deciduous vine is reliably beautiful and vigorous.

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 2 clematis, which means its flower buds develop on the previous year's growth, so pruning should be done after it blooms.
