Cultural Preferences

Though Clematis armandii is very difficult for to propagate, it is exceptionally easy to grow in the landscape. It grows best in a moist but well-drained soil of average fertility and full sun to part shade. Though it's quite drought tolerant when established, it will appreciate an occasional watering in prolonged periods of dry weather. Make sure not to plant this one too deep as it tends to smother the plant. See pruning instructions just below.


Clematis Pruning Group 1

Clematis in pruning Group 1 flower on the previous years growth and therefore should not be cut back ground level. If you prune, do so as soon as possible after flowering. Avoid pruning after the end of July so the plant has time to produce next year's flower buds before winter sets in. To reduce bulk of older plants, additional pruning can be performed to remove three or four year old wood. Make pruning cuts above a pair of healthy buds.
