Information On The Clematis Cirrhosa

The clematis cirrhosa is an evergreen perennial. It not only produces blooms in the summer but it is known for also producing them in the late winter. This sets this plant apart from other flowering trees or shrubs. It is also a hearty plant and very easy to grow. You can place it under a wall or trellis and it will climb up and separate to produce a stunning flowery wall. The clematis cirrhosa can easily grow to over 20 feet in height and can be pruned to your individual tastes.

This plant has smaller dark green leaves but instead of them being one bigger separate leaf, this plant has 5 separate smaller leaves on the same stem. The leaves are thin and long with a point on the ends and the blooms have a unique feature. They can come in a variety of colors that include white, pink, and yellow but there can also be a freckling that occurs on the petals. If the bloom is white for instance, the freckling can be seen on the middle of the petal and it may be a pink to tan color.  These blooms have a light pleasant fragrance. The clematis cirrhosa can be a nice addition to any garden.

These plants can survive through the winter and once they have established themselves, they will keep producing blooms for many years to come. This plant is very easy to grow but you may want some helpful tips for growing the clematis cirrhosa.

The definition of a climbing plant is a plant that grows in an upward direction and branches out. These plants also cling onto walls, trees or a trellis. You will have to choose an area to place your plants and make sure they have plenty of room to reach up and grow. You can also decide how tall the plant will be. You can allow it to grow and reach anywhere from 15 to 20 feet or you can keep the plant pruned. If you will be growing more than one clematis cirrhosa, you should space them at least 10 feet apart from each other. At first, the plants can seem too far apart from each other but over time these bare areas will be covered. Be patient and let the areas naturally fill in.

Place your plants in an area that has full direct sun light. Most flowering plants that produce blooms thrive in direct sunlight. You can place them in an area with a bit of shade but the shade must occur in the morning. In the afternoon the direct sunlight is the hottest, so as long as the plant receives this type of strong sunlight for a few hours everyday, it should be fine.

Younger plants have to be watched carefully when it comes to watering. Until the plant fully matures, you can water it on a regular basis but make sure that the roots do not become saturated. This can damage or even kill the plant. It is a good idea to plant them on a raised bed so the water can drain away from the roots. Before you water this plant, you can feel the soil to make sure it isn’t too moist. Before watering any type of plant, make sure that the soil is dry and a bit sandy.

Pruning may be needed for this plant. It grows quickly and if you choose to keep it at a certain height, you can prune the plant every spring. You should never prune too much of any plant at one time. You can do it safely without harming the plants, a few times a year.
