Details

The Cardinal Wyszynski is an absolutely beautiful plant! Masses of 6-8" crimson flowers adorn the vines from July to September. If you have a bare wall in full sun you will be rewarded by an unbelievable flower display from this wonderful Clematis. Cut you Clematis back to 12" in the spring and by fall it will grow to 8' tall. Enjoy!

Planting & Care for Clematis Vines

Preparation

  • Clematis like to have their top growth in full sun but their roots in the shade. Roots can be shaded with plantings of groundcovers plants or with other low-growing subjects, with paving slabs or with even a deep mulch of organic matter.
  • Clematis grow well in any well-drained, reasonably rich soil containing plenty of humus.
  • They are particularly suitable for chalky soils.
  • Keep the plants permanently mulched with organic matter.
  • These are “twiners” – climbing plants that twine their new shoots entirely around a support.
  • Clematis should not be allowed to suffer from lack of moisture, so water plants well during rainless periods if the soil starts to dry out.
  • Plant in February or March.

Planting Groundcovers/Vines

  • Planting bed should consist of 6-8" of topsoil, well mixed with approximately 2" of peat moss.

Pruning - After Planting

  • Groundcovers/Vines – no pruning is needed right away.

Pruning - Through-out the Season

  • The only pruning these plants need is thinning when they become congested. This is done after flowering.
  • If renovation pruning is needed, cut down the complete plant to within 12 inches of the ground after flowering ever three to four years.

Watering - After Planting

  • Plants typically take approximately 6 weeks to establish new roots in your soil. During this period, water plants as often as every 2-4 days at the start and at least a minimum of once per week.
  • Beyond the 6 week establishment period, water once per week, unless rains occur.
  • Stick your finger into the soil around 3” to check soil moisture.

Watering - Through-out the Season

  • After the first season, plants should only be watered during extended periods without rain.
  • Clematis should not be allowed to suffer from lack of moisture, so water plants well during rainless periods if the soil starts to dry out.
  • How do you know if your plants need water? The easiest way to tell is to touch the soil around the roots. If it is moist, there is no need to water. If it is dry, give it a good soaking with the hose end (no nozzle) watering the soil only, not the leaves.
  • Stick your finger into the soil around 3” to check soil moisture.
