Clematis - Franziska Maria™
Ohh Ahh Blue
The Clematis Franziska Maria™, 'Clematis', produces gorgeous double blooms! It outperforms any other double flowered clematis, and the blue-purple blooms are so full they are nearly round when fully open.
These show-stopping 4 to 6 inch blossoms will make your neighbors “oooh and ahh” all summer long, even into the early fall!
With its stunning blue-purple hue, Franziska Maria™ is sure to become one of your garden favorites.
The beautifully formed double flowers are produced on both old and new growth, so there is a repeat flowering pattern.
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.
This is a very reliable performer once established; it takes a season or two to get going!
Franziska Maria™ can be used for both trellising and pots, so it needs a supporting structure, and it is a good plant for growing against fences and walls, and is ideal for small gardens!
