description for "Clematis: Clematis 'H. F. Young'"
'H.F. Young' clematis is large flowered. One of the nearest to blue as clematis get. Flowers are large, purple with creamy stamens. It has flowers all up and down the vine. 'H.F. Young' is a member of Groups 2a and 2b (Groups B1 and B2) clematis â€“ prune only after flowering, to shape, or to remove dead wood. The Group 2 clematis flowers on wood produced the previous season AND on the current yearâ€™s growth. However, the Group 2 differs from Group 1 in that they flower both in the spring and then again either intermittently through the summer (Group 2b) or in the fall (Group 2a). To encourage additional blooms, Group 2 clematis should be deadheaded after the initial spring bloom. Provide full sun to part shade and consistent moisture. â€“ edited by dtd pbcouchman
