    For the Clematis Elodi, which is commonly known as the Bush clematis, it is essential to maintain consistently moist, but not waterlogged, soil. During the growing season, water the plant deeply once a week with about 1 gallon of water per plant, ensuring that the water penetrates the root zone. In hot and dry conditions, you may need to water twice a week, while during cooler or rainy periods, reduce the frequency to prevent overwatering. It’s important not to let the plant dry out completely, which can stress the plant and affect its growth.

  • sunLight

    The Bush clematis prefers a location that provides it with full sun to partial shade. The best spot for the plant would be one where it receives at least 6 hours of sunlight daily. However, the roots and base of the plant benefit from being kept cool and shaded, so consider planting low-growing shrubs or perennials near the base, or using a mulch to shade the root area.

  • thermometerTemperature

    Clematis Elodi requires temperatures that generally range from 25°F during winter months up to 85°F in the summer for optimal growth. The ideal temperature conditions for the Bush clematis would typically be between 50°F and 75°F. It's hardy in USDA zones 4 through 9, ensuring it can survive winters where temperatures do not routinely fall below -20°F.

  • scissorsPruning

    Prune the Bush clematis to promote healthy growth and flowering. For this type of clematis, which flowers on the current year's growth, pruning should be done in late winter or early spring, cutting back the plant to about a foot high or just above a pair of strong buds. Pruning encourages the plant to produce more stems, which results in a fuller plant and more blooms during the growing season.

    Clematis Elodi prefers well-draining soil with a pH ranging from 6.5 to 7.5. A good mix for this clematis would be two parts loam, one part sand, and one part well-rotted compost. This provides a balance of drainage, aeration, and nutrients suitable for this perennial vine.

  • plantRepotting

    Clematis Elodi should be repotted every 2-3 years to replenish the soil and provide space for root growth. However, since clematis prefer not to be moved, repot only when necessary and handle the roots with care to minimize disturbance.

  • circleLife cycle

    Clematis 'Elodi', also known as 'Evipo115', starts its life as a seed, which germinates in the soil in optimal conditions of warmth and moisture. It then develops a root system and sprouts, forming a seedling with its first true leaves. As it matures into a vegetative state, the plant develops a strong stem and more complex root system, as well as its characteristic compound leaves. During the flowering stage, Clematis 'Elodi' produces large, mauve-blue flowers which are hermaphroditic, containing both male and female reproductive structures, allowing for self-fertilization or cross-pollination by insects. After pollination, the flowers develop into fruits, known as achenes, each containing a seed that can be dispersed by wind. Over winter, the plant may die back, especially in colder climates, but it is a perennial and will regrow from its rootstock the following spring to continue its cycle.

      Spring-Early Summer

    • The Clematis Elodi, known as 'Evipo115', is typically propagated through cuttings. This method is the most popular and involves taking a section of stem from a mature plant during late spring or early summer. The selected stem should have several sets of leaves and should be cut just below a set of leaves to include a node, which is where the new roots will develop. The cut end can be dipped in rooting hormone powder to encourage root growth. The cutting is then placed in a pot filled with a mix of peat and perlite or a sterile seed-starting mix and kept moist but not waterlogged. It's covered with a plastic bag or placed in a propagator to maintain high humidity, and placed in a warm area with indirect sunlight. Rooting can be expected in a few weeks, after which the new plant can be gradually acclimated to outdoor conditions.
