CLEMATIS 'The President'
Clematis, Early Large-flowered Clematis, The President Clematis
The President clematis is a deciduous woody vine that bears many flowers early in the season. From late spring to early summer, large flowers of velvety purple appear along twining stems covered with medium green leaves. This clematis grows best in sites with full to part sun and fertile, well drained soil. Flower buds develop from the previous year's growth, so pruning should be done after plants bloom. If left unpruned, plants will sporadically flower again in fall. As with most clematis, this selection adds a vertical element to the garden and looks best when trained on a fence, trellis or pergola.
