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!
