Clematis VANCOUVER™ 'Sea Breeze' is a superb variety featuring flowers with wavy, lavender coloured petals and yellow stamens. The large lavender Clematis flowers are 6-8 in (15-20 cm) and have a very long bloom season from late May all the way until October. Sea Breeze is most popular for its profusion of flowers for most of the year. Depending on environmental conditions, the lavender colored wavy edged tepals sometimes have a somewhat rosy tone.
Clematis vines are most often planted near a trellis, patio wall, or some structure for support. They can also be planted sprawling over shrubs, stumps, or through perennial gardens.
Clematis is best planted in a location where the foliage and flowers are mostly in the sun, but the roots are kept cool and moist in the shade. Consider using mulch around the root zone in summer and fall. Pruning Group: 2
Group 1 – Flowers only on old wood (previous year). Prune after spring flowering.
Group 2 – Flowers on both old and new wood. Little pruning should be done for woody-stemmed members of this Group. If cut to the ground or pruned in fall or spring, flowering will be reduced or delayed, but not prevented.
Group 3 – Flowers only on new wood. Can be cut to the ground in fall or spring.
