Plant details

The compact habit of 'Asao' makes it perfect for growing in a container, allowing you to enjoy clematis in places where there is no open soil to plant them in, such as the patio. It produces its deep pink flowers from late spring to early summer and often follows these with a second flush later in the summer. The foliage takes on attractive bronze tints in late spring. To prune, remove any dead or weak stems in late winter or early spring and cut remaining stems back to the highest pair of strong-growing buds. To encourage blooms to cover the whole plant, train the stems so that they are evenly spaced on their support. As new growth appears in mid-spring, train this to fill any gaps.
