Clematis Stand By Me
Stand By Me is a remarkable bush Clematis with gorgeous bell shaped flowers that bloom for months. In late May masses of clear blue flowers appear on 1-2′ tall stems. This strong bloom continues well through June with a lighter bloom the remainder of the summer into fall. Bush type Clematis benefit from staking or support from neighboring plants. If given no support Stand By Me will turn into a rambling ground cover. A great choice planted under vining Clematis where it can use the already established support system. It also looks fabulous against fences.
Plant in rich soil or soil that has been amended with organic matter. This Clematis prefers full sun to light shade. For best results keep consistently watered, especially when plants are setting up buds and blooming.
Pruning. In late winter or early spring they can be trimmed down to 3-4” tall. New shoots should emerge from the crown beneath the soil.
Offered in-house. Subject to availability.
