Cardinal Wyszynski Clematis

  • Huge 8″ Crimson Flowers
  • Blooms All Summer
  • Vigorous Climber

Clematis Cardinal Wyszynski will dazzle your garden with huge 8″ glowing crimson flowers!

The vibrant flowers are accented with darker crimson anthers and light pink filaments. Very free flowering, the clematis ‘Cardinal Wyszynski’ received the Golden Medal at ‘Plantarium’ in 1990. (Named after Cardinal Wyszynski who never became pope. Cardinals are known for their bright red garb.)

Clematis Cardinal Wyszynski needs a supporting structure to grow properly but will also grow over large shrubs, over walls, cover stumps, and make perfect cover ups for unsightly service areas.

Clematis Cardinal Wyszynski is easy to grow in a rich, porous, alkaline soil with plenty of room for the roots to spread. Best performance is when the tops are in full sunlight and the roots are shaded, so apply generous mulch or a shallow-rooted ground cover near the base of the vine.

Groom this plant after first flowering by cutting back the top one-third to one-half of some stems. Clematis Cardinal Wyszynski is a very reliable performer once established; it takes a season or two to get going!
