Clematis viticella 'Venosa Violacea' has spectacular blooms, featuring dark, almost black stamens, and a contrasting bright white base with violet purple veins highlighting the edges. The flowers are 4-6 in (10-15 cm) and bloom profusely between June and September. This white and purple Clematis is an award-winning favorite and has been popularly grown since it was bred in 1883.

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: 3

Pruning Groups:
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.
