  • water dropWater

    Clematis 'Reflections' requires a consistent watering schedule to ensure the soil is evenly moist but not waterlogged. During the growing season, it should be watered about once a week, depending on climate conditions, with roughly one gallon of water per plant. In hot and dry periods, you may need to water more frequently, but it's important to ensure proper drainage to prevent root rot. During winter, when the plant is dormant, reduce watering but do not allow the soil to completely dry out. It's best to water deeply and infrequently rather than shallow and often, to encourage strong root growth.

  • sunLight

    Clematis 'Reflections' thrives best in a position where it can receive at least six hours of sunlight per day, ideally in the morning with some afternoon shade in hotter climates. It can benefit from bright indirect light during the hottest part of the day to prevent the foliage from scorching. A spot with morning sun and afternoon partial shade is often considered ideal for this variety of clematis.

  • thermometerTemperature

    Clematis 'Reflections' prefers temperate conditions and is hardy in a range of climates. It can typically withstand winter temperatures down to about 20°F and can thrive in maximum temperatures of around 85°F. The ideal growing temperature for this plant is between 55°F and 75°F, which provides a moderate climate for optimal growth.

  • scissorsPruning

    Clematis 'Reflections' should be pruned to encourage vigorous growth and optimal flowering. It is in pruning group 3, meaning it flowers on the current year’s growth, so pruning should be done in late winter or early spring. Remove dead or weak stems before growth begins, cutting back to a pair of strong buds about a foot above ground level. This will help stimulate new growth and result in more flowers during the blooming season.

  • circleLife cycle

    Clematis 'Reflections' begins its life cycle as a seed or more commonly from a cutting or young nursery plant. It initially puts forth roots and a shoot system during its juvenile stage, which, upon reaching maturity, develops into a complex vine with leaves. The plant enters a vegetative growth phase where it focuses energy on developing a robust stem and foliage system. In the flowering stage, typically in late spring to early summer, Clematis 'Reflections' produces large, prominent flowers, often in shades of pink or purple, which attract pollinators for sexual reproduction. After pollination, the flowers develop into seed heads that release seeds when mature, thereby completing the reproductive cycle. Throughout its life, the plant undergoes periods of growth and dormancy, with the above-ground portion dying back in winter in cooler climates and re-emerging from the crown in the spring.

      Spring to Summer

    • Clematis Reflections, known as 'Evipo035' (LL), is best propagated in late winter or early spring when the plant is not actively growing. The most popular method of propagation for this Clematis is by semi-hardwood cuttings. To do this, select a healthy stem from the current year's growth that has begun to mature but is not yet overly woody. Cut a 4 to 6-inch (approximately 10 to 15 centimeters) long section of stem, making sure there are at least two sets of leaves or leaf buds. Remove the leaves from the bottom half of the cutting, and dip the cut end into a rooting hormone to encourage root development. The cutting should then be placed in a pot filled with a mix of peat and perlite and kept at a consistent temperature of 64 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit (approximately 18 to 24 degrees Celsius) with high humidity and indirect light. Roots typically form within 6 to 8 weeks, after which the new plant can be transitioned to a larger container or directly into the garden.
