Growing Large bloom Clematis from Seeds孵大花鐵線蓮種子

Growing Large bloom Clematis from Seeds孵大花鐵線蓮種子

Large bloom Clematis seedlings
It takes a long time to grow but they are so beautiful, definitely worth the effort…


Clematis mutation of this seedling with variegated foliage — you can see the white streak in the center of the leaf. 這株鐵線蓮的小實生苗變異成斑葉,可見葉片中央有白色紋路.

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.

Method B:

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.


3.等幾個月. 要有耐心.
4.小心撿出長根的種子出來盆植於土中直到小苗開始攀爬. 這期間要半日照.
5.移植小苗到戶外地植. 要給攀爬用的支架/網.


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.

2.找一條中小型活蚯蚓養在袋中. 撒入要孵的已去殼鐵線蓮種子.

3.袋子置於室溫或稍稍溫暖的地方.  光線需求為室內光線或更暗皆可.


5.種子發芽後要撿出個別用小盆種,土要保濕,介質以透氣高為主.  低光照.


7.小苗開始能爬時可以地植或單獨個別以深盆種植. 半日照或全日照處的支架下.

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!

如果孵的種子量夠多又幸運的話,有可能長出變異的小苗,可能有著斑葉,或著植株成為不休眠的常綠,或著開花時有著不尋常的花形/花色!  有孵就有機會享受開獎的驚喜!

It is a tender perennial summer flowering bulb, very easy to grow in full sun location. It is very easy to grow and to be propagated by seeds, tuber root with crown or stem cuttings from young shoots. 為不耐寒全日照的夏季開花球根花卉. 非常容易栽種和繁殖. 常以種子或分球或分芽扦插來繁殖.

Love the big blooms! This one is big, it measures over 12 inches across–although it is not the biggest one in my garden. The biggest one is 13 inches across! It is troublesome to take a picture with tape measure even with camera on timer…
我愛這種大花扶桑! 這朵雖大,經量尺丈量略超過直徑12吋–雖然不是我花園最大的一朵花. 我的最大花記錄有直徑13吋喔! 蠻難邊拿量尺邊拍它的即使相機有定時自拍的設定…
