We have grown Clematis 'Iubileinyi-70' in our gardens for almost twenty years and have always admired its vigorous and free-flowering nature. Bred by A.N. Velosenko-Valeris of the Nikitsky State Botanic Garden in Ukraine, 'Iubileinyi-70' is one many plants from behind the Iron Curtain that now grace gardens throughout the world. The flowers mostly have six sepals (although sometimes they have four or five). They have wavy edges, a ribbed central bar and come to a pointed tip. The filaments and anthers are tawny and complement the flower color. This was released to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Lenin in 1870. The name is often written in English as 'Jubilee 70'. (There is some question as to the parentage of this cross. The International Clematis Society gives C. 'Blue Gem' and C. 'Jackmanii' as the parents, but other sources indicate that this is a cross between C. 'Jackmanii' and C. 'Gipsy Queen'.)

Because this blooms on new wood, it is best pruned at the end of winter. Be sure to feed the plant after pruning. A good tomato or rose fertilizer is appropriate.
