Quick Overview:

‘The President’ is an early large-flowered cultivar that typically grows to 8-10′ tall. Single, purple-blue flowers (to 7″ diameter) with red anthers bloom early to mid season on old growth followed by additional late summer bloom on new growth. Dark green leaves. Showy seed heads develop in fall. RHS Award of Garden Merit 1993.

Group 2 pruning:  Flowers on both old and new wood. Typically, 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.

Description

Grow in fertile, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Vining hybrids are best sited in locations where the flowering parts of the vine are in sun to part shade but the roots are shaded. Some light afternoon shade is usually beneficial in hot and humid summer climates. Clematis vines need a trellis or other support on which to grow. Roots should be kept cool, shaded and uniformly moist. Root areas may be shaded with perennials, annuals or small shrubs. A thick root mulch is appreciated. Do not allow soils to dry out.
