Spring Delivery! We begin shipping in mid-March, which is the perfect time for planting for most zones.
Diamantina is a gorgeous climber with large, showy blooms (measuring up to 6" across).
Flowering comes twice on this beautiful, deciduous climber-- once in late spring and then again in late summer to early autumn.
Contains one semi-dormant starter plant.
Plant the crown (area where the stem and the roots divide) of your Clematis about 3" below the soil line.
Provide supports as soon as your Clematis is planted to help it flourish.
If planting more than one Clematis, space at 4-6' apart.
Clematis likes to have its roots shaded, but its foliage likes up to six hours of sun. Pick a location that will best accommodate a little of both, sun and shade. Mulching is a great way to help keep the roots cool.
Plant any time after the last spring frost and before fall’s first one, with the exception of the heat of summer. Exceptionally hot days will hinder your plant's ability to establish well.
Additional Care Instructions
Clematis loves a good feeding schedule! Provide a 5-10-10 fertilizer in the spring and alternate with 10-10-10 every 4-6 weeks through the growing season for healthy foliage and an abundance of blooms.
Water regularly, especially during the hottest times of the year.
To encourage a second round of flowering, simply prune stems back to large buds or strong side shoots after the initial round of blooms have died back.
