Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Clematis integrifolia does not climb or twine, so it needs staking or support. Prune the plant to about 8-10 cm in the spring, and the new leaves will form at the woody base. This clematis is slow to establish and grow best in a rich, moist to average, well-drained soil, in full sun. Protection from intense afternoon sun is beneficial. 

Additional Notes about Solitary Clematis:

Clematis are grouped into three different categories for pruning and maintenance:

Group 3: Late Flowering - Flowers form on the terminal 60-90 cm of the current season's growth. Some bloom as early as midsummer and continue into the fall. In early spring, prune each stem, leaving the lowest 2-3 buds. The new growth can be tipped back when it reaches about 30 cm, to induce better branching and flowering.
