With a petite habit and the ability to bloom in both double and single flowers, ‘Piilu’ clematis is a wonderful vine for the deck or patio. Double ruffled lavender blooms are produced on old stems in early summer, and single flowers follow on the current season’s growth. Very hardy. Part-shade. (Clematis)
48-60" tall (4-6 feet) x 36-48" wide. You don’t have to choose doubles over singles when you choose ‘Piilu’ clematis. This Estonian cultivar will bloom with ruffled purple blossoms on old wood in early summer. Then in early fall it will bloom again on new wood in single pink flowers with a deep central bar. Although it is extremely well-behaved at 4-6 feet, it’s known as one of the most floriferous of clematis cultivars and is therefore great for patios, decks or front door tableaus. Plus, it doesn’t require much maintenance besides a tip pruning of dead wood in early spring which is good news for busy gardeners. ‘Piilu’ blossoms will fade if exposed to too much sun, so find it a part-shade site where blooms will last longer. Rich, moist soil and a good dose of morning sun will give it all it needs to grace your garden with gorgeous blooms – and then do it all over again!
