This unique Clematis is a study in fascinating color and form! Huge, 4 ½- to 5-inch lilac-pink flowers open gradually from striking bronze petals brushed with green, creating a three-tiered effect. Then, as the outer petals drop, the flower changes shape, acquiring a pompon look. This floriferous beauty is also a strong, healthy grower boasting an all-summer bloom time.

Josephine™ is a 1998 introduction from renowned Clematarian Raymond Evison and is ideal for a small garden or container, and is a spectacular cut flower. To achieve best flowers and color, plant in full sun. If you prefer greener flowers, allow some shade. Pruning group II - pruning should be done in March as you cut back the vine 6 or 8 inches to a pair of strong buds.

And don't forget! Clematis (some species more than others) are often slow to break dormancy each spring. Be patient and don't exhume your plant before it decides to wake from its winter sleep. Zones 4-9. W:3-6 feet H:8-9 feet.
