This is a lovely variety to grow scrambling among climbing roses or a trellis, or up and over a pergola or arbor. Size: 8-12' vining...
Exposure: Viticella varieties can take more sun than other types of clematis but will perform better shaded from the hottest rays of the afternoon sun. Shaded roots preferred.

Pruning: 1st year in late January/early February, cut to 6” from ground level. Then cut by half after first flush of blooms is finished. Second year & beyond; late winter cut is to 18” from ground level. Feed after each pruning session with a well-balanced fertilizer
