Quick Overview:

‘Blue Light’ is large-flowering clematis that features double pale blue flowers. This is a deciduous, semi-woody climbing clematis vine that typically grows to a compact 6-8’. Features large, dahlia-like, double, pale blue to blue-violet flowers (5-6” diameter). Blooms from late spring through much of the summer. May stop blooming in the heat of the summer with some additional bloom occuring later in summer as temperatures begin to moderate.

Group 2 Pruning:

Prune in late winter or early spring (February) as follows:

  • Remove dead or weak stems before growth begins. Check individual stems from the top down until you reach a pair of healthy buds, and prune just above them, removing the spindly or damaged growth above
  • Avoid heavy pruning or flowers will be lost

Then prune again after the first flush of flowers:

  • To encourage a second flush of flowers later in the season prune back some stems by cutting to large buds or a strong side shoot immediately below the blooms
  • Top-heavy or overgrown plants can be gradually reduced over two to three seasons by pruning back harder after the first flush of flowers. They are unlikely to produce a second flush of flowers, but should flower again the following year, in late spring or early summer

 

 

 

 

 

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.
