Black fragrant Clematis (Clematis tashiroi) 田代氏鐵線蓮
Clematis alpina ‘Frances Rivis’ 高山鐵線蓮
This alpine Clematis is very hardy and valuable with its early blooming. It prefers in full sun to partial shade location. Mature size:10′(H) X 5′(W). USDA Zones:3-9. This requires no maintenance as it is in the wild but if prune away the weak branches tips and seed heads (if not collecting seeds) in summer will promote more flowers in next spring!
這種高山鐵線蓮非常的強健其價值在於它是春天早開的鐵線蓮. 喜全日照到半日照的環境. 成熟株高為3公尺高,1.5公尺寬幅. 非常耐寒. 如野生時一樣是不需要維護的可是如能於夏季時修剪掉較弱的枝條和花球(若不收種子的話)可以將明春的花量提高. 適合涼棚或籬笆上和其它不同花期的鐵線蓮一起運用.
Clematis ‘Sweet autumn’ (Clematis terniflora ‘Sweet Autumn’) 鐵線蓮 ‘甜秋’
Super easy to grow, very hardy flowering vine! Best in full sun to partial shade location. Large amount of small white fragrant flowers from mid summer to frost. Flowers attract bees and butterflies. Flowers are good for cut flower. Its flowers have sweet fragrance similar with vanilla. I notice it is only noticeable when plant blooms large amount of flowers.
It is cold hardy and tolerant heat. USDA Zones:5-9. (But some believes it is 4-10/11.) Mature size:20-30′(H) x 1′(W). Easy to propagate from seeds, layering or cutting. It is tricky because thin stem (some people had done it) but it is possible to graft Clematis vine. Imagine a strong clematis vine with different varieties graft together, it will bloom almost whole year with different color flowers.. 🙂
Suggest Care: Cut back 1/3 in the early winter to promote more new shoots in spring.
超容易栽種,非常強健的蔓藤花卉! 以全日照到半日照處栽種為佳. 仲夏到結霜的這段時間是花期,開大量芳香的小白花,花香要花量夠多才會明顯,香甜的花香像是香草.
耐寒又耐熱. 成熟株高可達20-30呎,寬1呎. 容易以種子,壓條,扦插來繁殖. 雖然因其莖細,難度較高但是有人已做過,證明是可以嫁接鐵線蓮的.–想像一下粗壯的鐵線蓮可以一年到頭開不同顏色和品種的花.. 🙂
Growing Large bloom Clematis from Seeds孵大花鐵線蓮種子
This is how I grow these, method A:
1.Remove the shell from dried seeds.
2.Keep them in a small re-sealable bag with clean water and place the bag somewhere dark and warm.
3.Wait several months for these seeds to sprout. Be patient.
4.Pick those sprouted seeds carefully and plant them individually in soil. Place seedlings in partial shade area until the plants start to climb.
5.Transplant those climbing young plants to the ground with climbing support.
1.Get a large re-sealable bag, fill 1/4 to 1/5 of clean soil, mist the soil but when you squeeze the soil, no water come out. 2.Get a small to medium live earth worm in the bag. Add the seeds (remove the shell of each seed), seal the bag. 3.Place the bag in room temperature or slightly warmer than that. Light requirement is toward to full shade. 4.Open the bag for fresh air and check the progress once a week. 5.Pick out the germinated seeds and plant them in small pot in moist and airy medium. Low light. 6.Move seedlings to partial shade when plants have 6-8 leaves. 7.Move the seedlings to partial shade location once is long enough/climbing. Plant the seedlings in the ground or use deeper pot planting each plant individually. Plant young plants in partial shade or full sun location right under the structure.
1.取一大夾鏈袋裝乾淨的培養土. 土量為袋子的1/4到1/5的高度. 噴濕帶中土壤到手用力擠不會出水但濕潤的程度.
If you grow enough seeds and you are lucky, you might hit the jackpot finding the mutation(s)! Like variegated foliage, evergreen or unique flower shape/color(s)! Have fun!
