    ‘Dragon Lady’ Crossvine produces showy salmon red trumpet-shaped flowers in early to mid summer. Bignonia ‘Dragon Lady’ is vigorous and fast growing, so it does well on strong tall trellises. The semi-evergreen dark green foliage turns shades of bronze and purple in fall. ‘Dragon Lady’ should be pruned vigorously just after blooming to keep it neat and tidy.

    We are often asked questions about pruning Clematis, and cultivars are often divided into groupings (1, 2 and 3) which are guides for optimal pruning.  Based on our own experience at Pleasant Run Nursery (and to simplify things), we have designated our Clematis into Group A and Group B.  

    Group A:  Cultivars which benefit from a light pruning in late winter or early spring, followed by a light pruning after the summer bloom period.  The second pruning encourages the large flowered cultivars to rebloom in late summer.

    Group B:  Species and Cultivars which tend to be more vigorous growers.  They preform best with a yearly hard pruning in late winter or early spring.  Always remove dead stems, and cut the Group B plants back to 1' to 2'. 

    Avant-Garde™ ('Evipo 033') Clematis comes from the Evison/Poulson hybridizing program. The 3" flowers are a showy combination of red surrounding pink petaloid stamens, making the blooms look almost double. The bloom period is July to September. Since Avant-Garde™ is a heavy bloomer, the show is very eye catching.
