Little Lemons is a fantastic abundant flowering Clematis, as proved by its Gold Medal from Plantarium 2019. We think it's perfectly named to describe how charming the blooms look--Little Lemons is covered in petite, nodding, bell-shaped flowers in sunny yellow. We also love the fact that we can get two different garden features out of this clematis. It's compact, so you can start it in a container or hanging basket, where it will fill in and mature to a manageable mound. After one or two seasons, you can bring it out to the mid-border, where its gorgeous color and long bloom time will be strong assets. On the other hand, if you'd like to leave it somewhere to grow and shine for years, it'll also fit well as a ground cover or a woodland garden feature. The other big reason gardeners love Little Lemons is the long season--it flowers all summer, and reblooms into fall. And then through the cooler seasons, fluffy seed heads keep things interesting.

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.
