Clematis - Candida
White Blooms All Summer
Clematis Candida, Clematis lanuginosa 'Candida', features pure white, 6" flowers with creamy white to yellow stamens that adorn this vigorous selection in early summer and again in late summer.
Candida makes a great cut flower and produces flowers on graceful vines of old and new wood. One of the best whites!
Clematis Candida 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 Candida is a very reliable performer once established; it takes a season or two to get going!
