clematis [Tranquilité]


Clematis Tranquilité, also known simply as Clematis, is a delightful climbing plant adorned with a profusion of flowers. Each bloom presents with a classy and simple elegance, showcasing a soft color palette that often encompasses shades of white to palest pink, creating an atmosphere of calm and serenity. The petals are gently rounded and overlap to create a full, rounded look to the flower. The blooms are usually abundant and are known for their interesting texture, providing a visual softness that is quite appealing. In the center of each flower, there's a contrasting array of stamens, which can appear as a light yellow to creamy color, offering a subtle but striking contrast against the delicate colors of the petals. These stamens are a central feature that attracts both the eyes of admirers and pollinators such as bees and butterflies. The foliage of this Clematis is comprised of green leaves, which can vary from a bright, healthy shade to a deeper green as the season progresses. The leaves are not just a backdrop to the flowers; they are essential to creating a lush appearance, often spreading out gracefully to support the showy blooms. The leaves can provide a beautiful contrast in texture and color to the surrounding garden plants, creating a harmonious and balanced visual display. This climbing Clematis can be grown up trellises, walls, fences, or even through other shrubs and trees, bringing vertical interest and beauty to gardens and outdoor spaces. It is prized for its ornamental value and is often used to add a touch of tranquility to garden designs, hence its name. The plant's display of flowers typically occurs from late spring to early autumn, with the blossoming episodes offering a dynamic and evolving spectacle throughout the growing season.

    Clematis Tranquilité, commonly known simply as Clematis, begins its life as a dormant bare-root plant or young plant in a small pot. Once planted, the roots establish in the soil, and shoots emerge, growing rapidly in spring and early summer. The plant enters a vegetative stage producing long, climbing vines and serrated leaves. By mid to late summer, it reaches the flowering stage, showcasing an abundance of creamy-white flowers with yellow anthers. Post-bloom, the Clematis enters the senescence phase with flowers developing into fluffy, plumed seed heads. During autumn and winter, the plant becomes dormant again, shedding leaves and preserving energy in the roots for the next growing season.

      Spring-Early Summer

    • Cloning is the most popular method for propagating Clematis Tranquilité 'Evipo111', also known as Clematis. This involves taking cuttings from the plant, typically during the spring or early summer when the plant's growth is most active. Cuttings should be about 4 to 6 inches (10 to 15 centimeters) in length, with at least two sets of leaves. The lower leaves are removed, and the cut end is dipped in rooting hormone before being planted in a well-drained soil mix. The soil should be kept moist, and the cuttings should be placed in indirect light until they have rooted, which usually takes a few weeks. Once rooted, the new clematis plants can be transplanted to a more permanent location in the garden.
