'Teshio' clematis (Clematis 'Teshio')
Genus:  Clematis
Double-flowered plants aren’t always my cup of tea; there’s something a bit fussy looking about them. But I make an exception for ‘Teshio’. Its spiky, double, lavender-blue flowers, stretching to 5 inches wide, are reminiscent of the venerable ‘Belle of Woking’ clematis, albeit darker. It’s fun to watch the spidery tepals unfurl—a bit haphazardly, at first, but eventually morphing into a pretty, well-structured blossom. ‘Teshio’ is a fairly strong bloomer from late spring to early summer, sometimes reblooming later in summer. It maintains a compact, bushy habit, reaching 7 feet tall, and is perfect for containers or patio plantings. Clematis is a great cut flower, and the spidery blossoms of ‘Teshio’ create quite a buzz in a floral arrangement. -Richard Hawke, Big blooming clematis, Fine Gardening #146, page 51
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Beautiful blue color and thrilling layers of petals.
Care:  Teshio™ belongs to the clematis pruning group 2. Thin out and untangle stems before growth begins in late winter or early spring, and then go over the plant again after the earliest flowers fade in late spring or early summer.
