CLEMATIS 'Mevrouw Le Coultre'
Clematis, Early Large-flowered Clematis, Mevrouw Le Coultre Clematis
Large, clean white flowers cover ‘Mevrouw Le Coultre’ from late spring to summer. Each pretty bloom of has a flourish of pale yellow stamens in the center. This old French cultivar (1885) is a vigorous tall vine with darker green leaves than others.
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 in summer 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.
