Clematis Blooming Seasons

Clematis Blooming Calendar


As climbers, Clematis are unsurpassed in their long flowering presence, their rich diversity of flower shapes, their wide array of colors and tolerances in terms of exposure and climate. It is no wonder they are so popular! From tree huggers to container varieties, there is a Clematis for every garden and flowers for almost every month of the year!

Clematis enjoy a long flowering season. Did you know that your garden could have clematis in bloom throughout the year, starting with Clematis armandii in early spring and finishing with Clematis cirrhosa in mid/late winter?

Gardeners are often attracted by the dramatic and eye-catching Large Flowered Clematis blooms or by the spectacular Clematis montana covered with thousands of delightfully fragrant flowers. Many are not aware of the early flowering or late blooming beauties included in the genus.

Members of the Ranunculaceae family, Clematis include more than 300 species and hundreds of hybrids. They are divided into 12 groups presenting very different sets of qualities, bloom times, flowering habits and pruning requirements.

If you select a Clematis from each group, you could enjoy blooms almost all year long. A gardener's dream!
