Blue Clematis usually have an element of pink or mauve in their colouring but 'Fujimusume' is the clearest, truest mid-blue Clematis available today. The flower has six broad overlapping tepals which taper along gently undulating margins to pointed tips. Contrasting stamens have white filaments with pale-yellow anthers. This variety will do well in semi-shaded areas. Cut blooms keep well in water.

Pruning will help keep your clematis vines healthy.  Pruning the dense tangle of stems opens the remaining shoots to air and light which encourages healthy growth and reduces the incidence of rot and disease.

Group 2 Clematis bloom in late spring on last years growth and again in summer on the new growth.  This group require a little more care when pruning as if you cut back too heavily after the first flush you will reduce the number of flowers on show in summer.

Prune back lightly to a set of strong buds in winter and remove any dead stems and trim to tidy the plant. After the first flush of flowers in spring, remove the spent flowers to encourage new growth and a stronger second flush in summer. Feed with a good quality liquid fertiliser after pruning to encourage growth.
