This clematis has 6-7", red flowers that bloom in May, June, and August. It is important to provide shade and protection to the roots of any clematis. Eastern exposure is best.

Pruning instructions: in early spring of the first year after planting, cut back stems to 12 inches. In the second and subsequent years, prune in spring as swelling leaf buds begin to show. Cut all dead material off above these swelling buds. Be sure all growth is tied to the trellis at this time. Do not tie too tightly, so growth can begin and not be hampered by tying too tight.
