Pink Fountain-Type Double Flowers
Clematis Empress, Clematis 'Empress™', is a charming clematis that will impress with a profusion of radiant pink blooms that have a frilly pompon top!
Clematis 'Empress' produces large double flowers that have pink petals with darker pink center bars. The inner petals sprout spiky pink "hair" and the plant blooms from May through fall in most climates.
'Empress™ is a spectacular compact, free-flowering plant that displays well in containers or small gardens.
Clematis 'Empress™' needs a supporting structure to grow properly but will also grow over large shrubs, over walls, cover stumps, and make perfect cover ups for unsightly service areas.
Clematis is easy to grow in a rich, porous, alkaline soil with plenty of room for the roots to spread. Best performance is when the tops are in full sunlight and the roots are shaded, so apply generous mulch or a shallow-rooted ground cover near the base of the vine.
Groom this plant after first flowering by cutting back the top one-third to one-half of some stems. Clematis 'Empress™' is a very reliable performer once established; it takes a season or two to get going!
