“Nelly Moser” Clematis
Blooms; May and June

Featured in SPRING BLOOMS ~ 02 May 2010

General Culture:

Easily grown in fertile, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Clematis generally prefer full sun. This cultivar has better shade tolerance than most, however, and flower color may actually hold up better in part shade. Roots should be kept cool (shade with annuals or perennials and/or use a 2” mulch) and uniformly moist. Intolerant of heavy clay soils. No pruning is required, however, a light pruning in early spring before new growth appears is advisable.

Noteworthy Characteristics:

Profuse, showy, eight-sepaled, 6-8” diameter, pale mauve pink flowers (sepals have reddish pink center stripes) with purplish brown anthers cover this vine in summer. Bloom on this cultivar comes primarily from the previous year’s stems in late spring, but also occurs in a second flush later in the summer on the new (current year’s) growth. Flowers give way to attractive seed heads.

Problems:

No serious insect or disease problems. Some susceptibility to wilt. Needs a supporting structure to grow properly.

Uses:

This Clematis can be trained to climb a wall, trellis, fence, arbor, porch or lamppost. Can also be planted to sprawl over and through large shrubs or over old tree stumps. Provides height and good architectural framework for small gardens. An excellent vine for long-lasting, often spectacular, summer bloom.

Cameras and photography captured my interest years ago as a child with my little Brownie. The cameras have changed over the years until the Digital age when I got really serious about photography. Not only has my work improved, but it has opened many doors to meeting wonderful people along the way. New friendships and learning new skills… I am hopeful that some of my best work is yet to come.
