Poorly looking clematis

Posted: 09/11/2016 at 18:34

Sorry for duplicating the link to website Clematis on the Web.   This entry is copied from the International Clematis Register and shows that clematis General Sikorski belongs to the Early Large Flowered Group, also known as Group 2, and flowers on old wood so should not be pruned hard in Spring.


However, you can grow this cultivar as Group 3 which will mean that it needs chopping hard back in Spring and will flower later, producing smaller but many more flowers.

General Sikorski is actually an Early Large Flowered Group clematis and should not be pruned.

This is texensis Maxima, Princess Diana was 1 of the parents, the flowers are much larger, and better foliage, than Princess Diana.

This is the 100 year old cultivar, Huldine, much nicer than Princess Kate in my opinion
