Gone are the days of out-of-control Clematis overtaking your garage, arbors and trellisses. Picardy™ is a new, incredibly compact, very free-flowering introduction with deep purple blooms with burgundy brushed petals. As these are flowering in spring, it is already producing trailing stems which provide more flowers. Excellent for mixed containers and lush, perennial hanging baskets. Part of the Raymond Evison Boulevard® series of patio friendly Clematis.
Plant in full to part sun in cool, alkaline soil. Prune stems down to 6" late winter to early spring. Fertilize regularly during growing season with organic fertilizer.
