Clematis Sugar Candy
Huge, 7” luscious pink with deeper pink stripe down the middle of each petal blooms are produced in lavish abundance during two big flushes, first in early summer and again in fall. Best grown where not exposed to direct sunlight. The first flush of flowers in the spring is on the previous year’s growth. After the first flush of flowering, cut back the top one-third to one-half of some stems. This encourages new growth for later bloom.
A member of pruning group 2. In early spring prune off dead or spindly wood, careful not to prune off old good wood or early flowers will be lost. Prune again right after first flush of blooms to encourage second bloom. Prune back some stems one-third to one-half by cutting to large buds or a strong side shoot immediately below the spent blooms.
