Description

Nonstop Flower Power

Crystal Fountain™ Clematis is a five-month blooming fountain.

Frills and thrills is the best way to describe this relentless climber. Its beautiful blue flowers resemble pompon-like blooms that keep appearing steadily for straight five months during the growing season. The blooms are 5 inches wide and come by dozens on a six-foot high plant that can spread up to three feet in width. The vibrant growth can be expected if the shrub is planted in well prepared soil that can be kept moist and well nourished. Crystal Fountain™ Clematis prefers full sun and is not suitable for container planting.

Pruning is important for clematis. Old branches, stems and flowers should be regularly removed to encourage new growth, and the plant can be cut back in early spring to retain its decorative shape. Crystal Fountain™ Clematis requires some attention and regular fertilization with organic matter. The existing soil can be mixed with mulch for additional nourishment. The roots of the plant should be kept cool and the top warm. This plant requires at least 6-8 hours of sun exposure for best results.

Beautiful

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This was the third year since I planted it, and the blooms in June were so beautiful! There were dozens of blooms on the plant, and it has grown to about 4' tall. Looking forward to years of blooms. Just lovely!!

I love to try different clematis plants. Got this one last year because it was offered on sale. Right now, after just one year it is covered in lush blooms which last. The most gorgeous display I've ever seen. Colorful, many shades of "blue" and the centers are awesome. Came back for the current sale to buy one for my daughter but it was sold out all ready! If you get a chance try this one. I credit this company for sending such healthy plants.
