A Couple of my Clematis

Clematis is one of my favorite vines, I love them and have somewhere around 10 or 11 so far. Unfortunately, I'm running out of places to plant them and am in the process of trying to figure out where to move a couple of mine that aren't doing well in the spot where they're currently planted.

Here are a couple of photos of the ones that are currently in bloom in my garden.

Madame Baron-Veillard, Hagley Hybrid and Bonanza

Venosa Violacea - This photo does not do the vine justice.

Beautiful ~ TY for posting!!!

My HH-Pink Chiffon is done w/ her 1st show - sigh! I failed to hard prune early this spring since I did prune to 10" before overwintering. She didn't do as well this season now that I set her in the ground. Do I prune her now and how far down?

Elsa was my 1st to bloom & 1st done, I pruned the upper 3rd as suggested to encourage another surge, is this right?

BTW I bookmarked *Clems. on the Web* & consult there with the 12 I have ~ but there are no suggestions on dealing w/ *after 1st show* nor *sudden wilt syndrome*. Am learning as I go ... new again to Clem care!

TIA for all the help in this Forum!!!

RE: A Couple of my Clematis

I hard pruned my Hayley Hybrid,Madame Baron V and VV very early this spring, around early March and they are all doing spectacular. As for Bonanza, I transplanted this one from out in front of my house to where she is now with HH and Mad. V. B. and she's doing a lot better but nothing like the other two. I've tried doing both, pruning in the fall and in the spring, depending on clem. and I've had good luck with both ways, so it's really hard for me to say.

I believe it also depends on the area where they are planted, also zone, sun/shade, water amount, soil, etc. etc. A couple of my neighbors fertilize their clematis' but I never do and get good results.

I know this spring I amended the soil in one of my perennial beds with loads of coffee grinds and shrimp and blueberry compost from the coast of Maine, and the plants are growing like crazy!
