Clematis Piilu: the Little Clematis Who Could

I accidently cut a branch with 6 buds when trimming. =(
So I put her in the bedroom window, and all the blooms opened from 5/1 ~ 5/13/20.

Excellent banner Cal!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thank you my friends for the nice comments, acorns & thumbs. Smiling
I've been away a while, and just happened to check in today,
and thought the banner looked familiar. Smiling

I think this is the original pic.

Here is a slideshow of the blooms over almost 2 weeks:
I just changed the water every other day, and added a 1/2 tsp sugar.

I've grown several clematis over the years,
but this one is the best bloomer so far
in our semi-arid eco-system.

I bought 4 Piilu 4" plants earlier this year, and put them in
plastic pots. Each one grew well & had multiple
blooms. They're relatively compact, growing only ~4ft,
at least the first year.

All have their "feet in the shade & tops in the sun",
which I thought was tried & true, but find now it may not
be absolutely necessary.(?)

I'll keep them in pots regardless, as I can control the growing
conditions, and move if necessary. Also, no competition from
rose roots, if pot is on a cement paver....roses roots can be
very invasive.

Also have Jackmanii & Josephine, but Piilu is
my favorite. Smiling
