Clematis 'Copernicus'

Common Name: Clematis

Brand new to the market in 2016! This flowering vine produces lovely medium sized blue flowers, usually semi-double. A light-colored bar extends down the center of each petal. Flowers appear from the base of the plant to the top of the plant nearly all summer long.

A member of:
Group 2—Early to midseason flowering cultivars and rebloomers
These varieties begin to bloom in early summer, with the first flush of flowers appearing on the previous year's growth. This is followed by a second flush flowers appearing on the new growth. These flowers will likely be smaller than the first ones and flowers that were double the first time may be single the second time.

The time to prune this group is in late winter or early spring. Dead and weak shoots should be removed and the remaining shoots cut back to 6-9 inches above a couple of well-developed buds.
