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.
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'.
