Clematis 'Souvenir du Capitaine Thuilleaux' (J. Thuilleaux, 1918) is most striking when the long boat-shaped sepals are opening and reveal their wavy margins. Pale pink sepals with dark pink bars. Lightly scented. All of our Clematis are two year old plants that are suitable for immediate planting in your garden.

Pale Pink/Dark Pink Bar flowers

Early flowering in the spring on the previous year's growth. If you hard prune, you eliminate most or all of the early blooms. Instead, groom this after flowering by cutting back the top one-third to one-half of some stems. This encourages new growth for possible summer bloom.
