This heavily flowering Clematis will create a galaxy of blooms in your landscape. A unique Clematis, the plant has been bred to have more outward facing flowers than most. Many of its flowers have extra sepals, so the plant is always showing you something new and interesting. Astra Nova's double form and petal-like stamen will have you starstruck, and its striking contrast of bright violet and pure white practically shouts "summer." A large plant with excellent growth, Astra Nova can fill an arch or pergola. Plant this out-of-this-world Clem, and invite passerby to gaze upon these eye-catching flowers. Clematis Viticella
In our EZ Pruning Guide, this variety is in the GREEN pruning category. These Clematis bloom on new vines that emerge from the ground each year or stems from near the bottom of older vines. Prune hard in the spring and as often as you like to encourage reblooming and keep the plant as tidy as you like.
