Clematis KokonoeAcclaimed for its beauty and strength
These blooms are 3-dimensional with layers of rich-hued sepals. They look delicate and detailed, but Kokonoe is no pushover. It's a resilient come-again plant, so if you cut it down after its first flowering, it'll grow new for a second show. That means you'll have both early- and late-summer flowers to dress up your landscape. And with that many blooms, you might as well grab a few to enjoy around the home, clematis are surprisingly strong cut flowers, and the exciting flower form of Kokonoe will be a special treat in the vase. As it is just hardy down to 5?, this is a great one for container gardening in cooler regions, where you can bring it in when the weather gets chilly. Put a trellis or tuteur in the pot for it to climb up, keeping the vine close and the flowers in the spotlight. Kokonoe has had the high honor of been shortlisted for the coveted Plant of the Year award for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2019. Clematis 'Kokonoe'
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.
