    The Clematis 'Palette' needs regular watering to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. During the growing season, water the plant thoroughly, using about 1 gallon per week, depending on weather conditions. Decrease watering in the fall and winter when the plant is dormant. It’s best to water the plant early in the morning or late in the afternoon to reduce evaporation. Always check the top inch of the soil before watering; if it feels dry, it's time to water.

  • sunLight

    The Clematis 'Palette' thrives in conditions where it receives about six hours of sunlight daily, making it suitable for a spot that offers partial shade to full sun. The ideal location would be one where the roots are shaded, possibly by other low-growing plants or a mulch layer, but the foliage and flowers can bask in the sun.

  • circleLife cycle

    The Clematis Palette, also known as 'Evipo034' (PBR) or 'Palette Clematis', starts its life cycle as a seed or more commonly from nursery-grown cuttings, initiating a vegetative stage characterized by root development and leaf formation. As the plant matures, it enters the vine growth phase, where it develops long, climbing stems with leaves, using surrounding structures or support to gain height and access to sunlight. The Clematis Palette then reaches its flowering state, which typically occurs in late spring to early summer, producing vibrant, multi-colored petals that can bloom repeatedly until early fall. After pollination, if it occurs, seed heads may form, which if conditions allow, can disperse to produce new plants, continuing the cycle. In the dormant phase during late fall to winter, growth slows down or ceases, and the plant may lose leaves as it conserves energy for the next growing season. With the return of warmer weather, the clematis resumes growth, completing the life cycle and beginning it anew.

    • Propogation time

      Spring-Early Summer

    • Propogation: The Clematis 'Palette', a patented cultivar known for its vibrant flowers, is usually propagated by semi-hardwood cuttings. The optimal time for taking cuttings is in the early summer when new growth is semi-ripe and still flexible. To propagate, one would take a cutting of about 4 to 6 inches (10 to 15 cm) long, ensuring there are at least two sets of leaves or nodes. After cutting just below a node, the lower leaves are removed and the base of the cutting is dipped in rooting hormone to encourage root development. Then, the cutting is placed in a pot filled with a well-drained potting mix or perlite and kept moist and warm, ideally around 70 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit (21 to 24 degrees Celsius), under indirect sunlight. Roots usually develop within a few weeks to months, after which the new Clematis 'Palette' can be transplanted into the garden.
