Noteworthy Characteristics

The well-known Clematis hybridizer Raymond Evison has developed this compact strain especially for growing in containers. 'Abilene' makes a fine container specimen, with rounded, deeply-lobed sepals that that change color with age, the deeper red bar at the center of each becoming apparent. Blooms come on early in summer and arrive in profusion all summer long into fall!

Pruning

Clematis Pruning Group 3
Clematis in group 3 consist of late-flowering species that bloom on new wood from summer into fall. They are easy to prune because you do not need to maintain any old wood. In late winter, cut each stem to a height of 1 or 2 feet above the ground, making sure to leave at least 2 buds. Although you will be removing good stems and buds, this treatment keeps these vigorous growers in bounds. If not pruned, these vines will quickly become a mass of old diseased woody stems producing very few flowers.New growth will emerge from these buds to produce the current seasons vines and blooms.
