Louise Rowe

Well formed, pastel-mauve, 4-6" (10-15cm) double flowers in May, followed by single blooms through the summer. This is a great performer! Mature height 6-9' (2-3m). Great for cut flowers and container gardening!
Double Clematis usually produces their double blooms in the late spring on stems produced the last growing season. The current season's growth produces single blooms later in the season. Some, like Louise Rowe, can produce single and double blooms at the same time. If they are pruned in the late fall or early spring, the ripe wood that produces the double flowers will be discarded and only single blooms will be displayed. 

Any extreme pruning is best left until just after the early blooms are finished giving the plant the rest of the growing season to produce new vines. Early extreme pruning will not hurt your plant. It will only change that season's blooming sequence. 
Vines are shipped and sold as well-rooted starter plants

When to Plant

Clematis can be planted as soon as the ground is workable. Like bulbs, clematis will react to the seasons with root growth in the summer and fall and top growth in the spring.

How to Plant

Plant in an area with sufficient light and a well drained soil mix. We recommend digging a 18" by 18" (45cm x 45cm x  45cm) hole and covering the bottom with a mix of rich compost and bone meal. Cover the compost mix with top soil before planting in the hole. Your watered clematis should be planted so that there is 6" (15cm) of stem below the final soil level. The stem should be ripe before burying it so if there is any uncertainty of this, leave the final fill until later in the season. 

Planting in Containers

Most varieties will do well in containers but plant growth and size will depend on the size of the container used and frequency of watering. It is important to include some sort of trellis, sweet pea netting, or cedar stakes to be used as a support system. When planting Clematis in containers, make sure to use something with several drainage holes in the bottom.

Clematis have three main pruning groups that we have simplified as A, B, and C. These groups are based on where the Clematis grows its new flowers. Follow our quick guide below to see when and where you should be pruning your established Clematis vines after their flowering season.

 Group A B C
Flower Time Spring Early Summer and Repeat Blooms Late Summer
Flowers on Old wood Old & new wood New wood
When to Prune After flowering (Summer) After flowering (Fall / Winter) After flowering (Winter / Spring)
Where to Prune Cut out weak or dead stems. Light pruning with variation in length in late Feb. or March. Remove weak or dead wood. Cut back to two strong sets of buds as close to soil level as possible.
