Clematis - Moonfleet
Huge Blue Flowers
Clematis Moonfleet, Clematis 'Moonfleet', produces absolutely stunning, large, flat open flowers that have a diameter of 7"!
The lilac-blue flower matures to a pale blue that creates a soft range of color! Purple-red anthers open on each flower to create a domed-flower center.
Moonfleet grows to an impressive 6' tall, so it is ideal for growing on a trellis or pergola; blooms from June through August.
It should be pruned in February or March as new leaf buds begin to show low on the plant; all dead and weak branches need to be removed.
Moonfleet is prized for its incredible flowers; only needs to have its roots shaded and its flowers in the sun!
For a gorgeous accent, plant alone or mix several colors in a grouping. Plant this clematis with cream, pale yellow or soft pink flowers, or it can be combined with climbing roses!
