Clematis Picardy™

Clematis 'Evipo024'

Clematis Picardy™

A clematis doesn’t have to be big to be bold. Picardy™ (‘Evipo024’) epitomizes this rule; its compact habit certainly doesn’t restrain the boldness of the vivid, violet-red flowers. This is no shrinking violet! Picardy™ is free flowering and often reblooms into late summer. Topping out at 5 feet tall, its petite size is suitable for containers and for small patios where larger clematis would be overwhelming. -Richard Hawke, Big blooming clematis, Fine Gardening issue #146, page 47


Noteworthy CharacteristicsA bold yet compact habit means this clematis can be grown almost anywhere.

CarePicardy™ 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.
