Clematis Evison®

Clematis has been one of the most popular garden plants for hundreds of years. Even the ancient Greeks and Romans were great fans. Given the Clematis’s popularity ever since ancient times, many cross-variations have become available. There are all sorts of varieties, colours and sizes. There are even evergreen varieties.

When does the Clematis flower?
Flowering periods for different Clematis vary a great deal. The Evergreen Armandii and Avalanche start flowering in April. The Alpina and the Montana are next and usually start flowering in April/May. The large-flowering species flower after the small-flowering varieties. Some species within this group produce their blooms in early summer; others in the late summer. By growing a nice mix of various types of Clematis in your garden you can enjoy their beautiful flowers from early spring until late summer!

What is the best location for Clematis?
Climbing plants naturally grow from shade towards the sun. They start low as young plants and climb their way upwards. Most climbers thus do very well in both semi-shade as well as in full sun. This makes a climbing plant suitable for most locations in your garden, which is very useful! Take care not to have the base (bottom) of creepers exposed to full sunlight all day. Most plants will thrive better with more sun. This also applies to the Clematis.
