This beautiful, relatively new variety will produce an abundance of large 15cm to 18cm, semi-double blooms from mid to late spring and early summer. If pruned hard after the first flush is finished it will produce more single blooms again in autumn. The stunning flowers are white with a central pink bar along each petal. 'Andromeda' is a vigorous growing vine reaching 2.0m to 3.0m in height. A great feature in any garden.

PRUNING GROUP 2

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.
