Clematis ‘Etoile Violette’

(Etoile Violette Clematis)


Hardiness Zones:

 4a  4b  5a  5b  6a  6b  7a  7b  8a  8b

Quick Overview:

Deep purple, 3″ blooms with an ‘eye’ of creamy stamens. They are borne in such profusion that they all but obscure the foliage, which explains why many Clematis aficionados rate this variety among the most free-flowering of all the hybrids.  Falling into Pruning Group Three, pruning is easy: simply cut stems back to the lowest pair of buds in February or March.

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.
