For the happiest plant, try to locate its roots in a partially shaded area where it can grow up into full sun. This can mean deliberately planting it somewhere with shade, or planting a shallow rooted groundcover near Pink Anemone’s base.
Finding the correct soil to plant your clematis in is easy. They are generally widely adaptable as long as it’s well draining!
Pink Anemone is more resistant to clematis wilt than other varieties and generally deer resistant.
This specimen flowers on last year’s wood so if you’d like to prune, make sure to do so directly after Pink Anemone is done blooming for the year. Otherwise, you risk reducing next year’s flower power!
