Clematis: Clematis henryi

Clematis: Clematis hen A classic garden climber, this clematis bears a profusion of single, creamy white flowers with brown tipped centers from midsummer to fall. Left to scramble through the border, this garden favorite blooms at the feet of annuals and perennials. Trained over a spring-flowering dogwood, its flowers highlight its neighbor's form throughout the season. And climbing a trellis it gives the garden a cool, airy quality.

Maintain soil moisture all season. After new growth emerges, apply a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer biweekly, or use slow-release fertilizer at planting, following label directions. 0 To control clematis wilt, remove and destroy infected stems immediately, pruning below the point of infection. To discourage powdery mildew, space plants for adequate air circulation and avoid wetting leaves when watering. Pick off diseased leaves where practical, and remove and destroy severely infected plants. To keep their roots cool and moist, Martha places clematis so the roots are in the shade but the stems are in full sun. To accomplish this, plant the vines in the shade of a wall or established shrub, or overplant with shallow-rooted annuals or perennials. Clematis have been cultivated in Japan and Europe for centuries. By the late nineteenth century, hundreds of cultivars had been created by nurserymen who crossbred the Asian and European varieties, many of which, such as developed by Anderson-Henry in Edinburgh in 1870, remain popular. In fall, choose a sunny, well-drained site, amend with compost or well-rotted manure, and place container-grown plants 3?4 feet apart. Set plants 2?4 inches deeper than they were in pots to encourage basal stem growth. If plants are bare root, soak roots in water for 30 minutes, dig a hole large enough to spread out roots, and make sure the point where the roots meet the stem is 2?4 inches below soil surface. Water after planting, and mulch to conserve moisture. 1 Provide a trellis, wall, tree, or shrub on which the vine can climb, or allow it to scramble through the border. This variety is one of the large-flowered clematis that are pruned in early spring as the buds are swelling. Remove dead growth and cut back each stem to just above two strong buds, 6?8 inches above the base of the plant. fertile, cool, well-drained 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 > 0 0 1 0
