|True Red Clematis 'Madam Julia Correvon'|
|Red Clematis 'Madam Julia Correvon' is on the first trellis, and two earlier-blooming clematis are on the other trellises surrounding the Circle Lawn. You can just see blue Clematis 'Perle 'd Azur' on the tree by the Shade Path garden. |
Being a group three clematis, she can be pruned in the early spring. All clematis prefer to have their heads in the sun and their feet (roots) in the shade. Plant some lower perennials around them if they are in the open on a free standing trellis, as they are here. And they love it when you add organic matter to the soil.

|I like Clematis 'Madam Julia Correvon' so well I have added another one to climb through my trellis rose on the other side of the house also. Picture to follow in a few years!|
