Vigorous and eager to please.

4- to 5-inch frilly, pompon blooms!
Plant Patent #16,072. Cultivar name: 'Evipo011'.

This exciting new Clematis combines unusual flower form with super long bloomtime to give you 5 months or more of glorious color! Very vigorous and easy to grow, Empress™ will soon reign in your sunny garden!

These flowers are extraordinary -- as if a frilly pompon-like bloom had been set on top of a single-flowered Clematis! They're 4 to 5 inches wide, and they arise BY THE MANY DOZEN on plants 6 feet tall and about 3 feet wide. There's nothing of the hot-house about Empress™ -- this is a rough-and-ready climber for your garden.

The flowers begin in late spring or early summer and continue steadily all summer long, lasting into autumn. Technically Empress™ is a rebloomer, but the flowers keep coming so steadily that you really may not notice "waves" of bloom, as you do with older varieties that need to rest between flowering periods. Terrific floriferousness, both in number of flowers and length of bloom!

Empress™ is the pink- to purple-flowered companion to blue Crystal Fountain, another Evison introduction. Just give this plant something to climb, and watch it take off!

Like most Clematis, Empress™ prefers to have its roots cool and its tops warm, so mulch it well upon planting, and keep the soil evenly moist. Pruning Group 2. Zones 4-9.
