I noticed Comtesse de Bouchaud was described as being tolerant to juglone. Is this one also tolerant?
Megan N on May 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: As long as you don't grow it at the BASE of a black walnut, it's OK to plant clematis NEAR one.
Can it be grown in container?
Alice P on Apr 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely. The pot needs to have some kind of stake or support for the vine to climb up on, or the pot needs to be placed agiainst a wall with a trellis or support.
Is this variety an annual or perennial?
DobbysSox on Apr 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: All clematis are perennial.

Still quite small, excited to see what it does next season
I live in NE Kansas, zone 6a. I'm excited to see Stark Bro's carrying this variety of clematis! It did arrive quite small, but I planted it about a month ago and have fertilized it once with rose fertilizer. While I haven't seen any growth yet, it hasn't died or wilted, and I've been careful not to over-water it.

Thanks again for carrying this variety! I love all the clematis developed by Brother Stefan Franczak!
