Montana Mayleen Clematis (Clematis montana ‘Mayleen’)

Montana Mayleen Clematis

Clematis Mayleen, Clematis montana ‘Mayleen’, is a charming beauty that displays small satin pink flowers in early summer.

These satin pink blooms with gold stamens, have a rich vanilla perfume – strongest scented of the Clematis Montana’s. This clematis is the earliest to bloom, with the buds coming from the previous season’s stems.

It is a deciduous climber, with dark green, bronze-flushed leaves.

It is a vigorous growing cultivar, but not as cold hardy as large flowering hybrids.

Clematis montana ‘Mayleen’ 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 montana ‘Maylee’ 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 montana ‘Maylee’ is a very reliable performer once established; it takes a season or two to get going!

Mayleen Clematis has attractive foliage that creates an all season appeal for that special place in your garden!
