Clematis Samaritan Jo
An elegant beauty, Samaritan Jo Clematis boasts very unique sharply pointed petals that are silvery pink and edged in purple. The anthers are purple at the base with cream colored tips. Named in recognition of the great volunteer work that Samaritans offer to people in distress. All volunteers are known as Samaritan Jo. Very long blooming, you can expect flowers June through September.
Samaritan Jo prefers lightly shaded areas out of afternoon sun. A member of Pruning Group 2–Samaritan Jo Clematis does not require pruning, yet a light pruning in early spring before new growth appears is beneficial. In spring when swelling leaf buds begin to show, cut off all dead wood above these swelling buds.
Plant in part shade, morning sun with afternoon shade, or filtered light. Add organic matter or compost when planting. Add a starter fertilizer or light application of all purpose fertilizer when planting. Water in well and keep consistently moist until plants are firmly established. Keep plants watered during dry spells.
