Clematis in the open field - planting and care


Clematis is a kind of decorative liana, strewn with many flowers of a wide variety of shades. Planting and caring for clematis outdoors is possible even for beginners, and recently flowers have gained immense popularity. These curly bouquets are increasingly used to decorate gazebos, fences, facades, or simply to decorate a flower garden and garden.

Clematis as a plant for open ground

Clematis belongs to the buttercup family. There are about three hundred varieties of this plant, which has won the tender love of all gardeners. They strive to plant it in the most prominent places in order to create coziness and a bright mood on the site. Often it is clematis that decorates the gate and is the first to greet guests. Thanks to the various types of this plant, which can be not only a liana, but also a shrub, even flowering hedges can be created.

Clematis flowers are small and large, and their shape and shades are simply amazing with their incredible variety. Different varieties bloom at different times for 3-4 months. Thanks to this, you can create a bright kaleidoscope of blooming clematis in the garden, which will delight the eye throughout the warm season from spring to early autumn.

The main decorative value of clematis is abundant flowering.

Most often, clematis is cultivated in the ground, but it will feel quite comfortable as a houseplant.

It is usually planted in pots, boxes or tubs (at least 60 cm high), placed in a well-lit place. Several holes must be made in the bottom of the container, then drainage, fertile soil are poured, and after planting, a support for the plant is certainly installed. To provide the roots with coolness and shading, stunted neighbors are planted in a pot with clematis.

Under comfortable conditions, clematis can bloom for up to five years without a transplant.

In which regions can be planted in open ground

Thanks to large-scale breeding work on the breeding of various winter-hardy varieties, clematis quite easily took root in the north-western regions of the country, in Siberia and the Far East. But in order to admire the bright colors of summer even in a harsh climate, it is important to choose the right varieties, the whips of which successfully endure frosts.

Clematis flowers are colored in almost all colors of the spectrum, also differing in an infinite number of shades.

Landing nuances

Most often, clematis is planted in open ground in mid-May. But if the seedling was purchased in the summer, planting should be done in September so that the plant has the opportunity to take root. Previously, this should not be done because of the high probability of increased growth (which is not necessary at all before winter) and freezing.

Planting clematis consists of several stages:

  1. Seat selection... The plant loves sunny, but slightly shaded areas, which allows it to maintain the brightness and saturation of the flowers. In addition, it needs reliable protection from wind and draft.
  2. Soil selection... Clematis likes light, nutritious, quickly absorbing moisture, loose soils. It is categorically impossible to plant clematis in heavy soil with high acidity, which will inevitably lead to the impossibility of its full development and death. It is important to take into account the level of soil moisture: the plant does not tolerate the abundance of groundwater poorly. To create the most comfortable conditions and protect the roots from decay, it is better to place the plant on an artificial small mound, made by hand. The presence of clay soil in the area selected for planting clematis requires the removal of moisture from the plant using a groove dug and covered with sand.
  3. Pit preparation... Its depth should be no more than 70 cm. First, a layer of rubble is placed on the bottom, then a specially prepared soil substrate (a bucket of earth, half a bucket of humus, 100 g of slaked lime).

    During autumn planting, the entire volume of soil is filled up immediately

  4. Planting a seedling... The roots of the plant are evenly distributed over the width of the pit, after which the substrate is poured on top. If planting occurs in spring, this is done in such a way that the recess is not completely filled up, while the rest of the soil is poured in small portions until autumn.

When planting clematis next to the walls of buildings, it is imperative to retreat 40 cm from them so that the roots cannot be damaged by rain streams from the roofs. If a composition of several bushes is planted, the gaps between them should be at least 25 cm.

Care features

The main care for clematis is timely sufficient watering and feeding.

Watering

Watering clematis is necessary at least once a week. During the summer heat, its frequency increases up to 2–3 times. At the same time, 1-2 buckets of water are enough for a baby bush, while for an adult - from 2 to 4. To reduce the frequency of watering several times and slow down the growth of weeds around clematis, filling the soil with a layer of mulch (peat, moss, humus) will help. If this is not done, you should regularly (the next day after watering) loosen the soil, simultaneously breaking through the weeds.

Fertilizer

It is also important to know that in different periods you need to use certain types of fertilizers:

  • nitrogen-containing - during intensive growth;
  • potash - during the formation of buds;
  • phosphoric - after flowering.

In the summer (after pruning), the plant is fed with a solution of complete mineral fertilizer (20 g per 10 l of water) and copper solution. Every spring, the bushes must be watered with lime milk (dolomite flour and chalk). During the flowering period, all feeding is stopped so as not to drown out the activity of the plant itself.

In order to protect the roots from rot during frequent summer rains, the bottom of the trunk should be covered with wood ash.

Support

There are several types of supports for vines (arches, pyramids, fan structures, cylinders), each of which is perfect for clematis. The supports allow for beautiful compositions and support the plant stems. Another requirement is the strength of the construction material, which could withstand the weight of the rapidly growing and weighted moisture after rains of clematis greenery.

The main thing is that the place of attachment of the stem to the support is not thicker than 10-12 mm

Pruning

The correct formation and beauty of the bush depends on this procedure. Pruning is carried out several times a year:

  • when planting (to form the crown and root system);
  • in spring (to increase the flowering period);
  • in summer (regulating pruning);
  • before wintering (taking into account the features that each species requires).

The tillering ability is a characteristic feature of clematis.

Preparing for winter

Before wintering, it is necessary to remove leaves from clematis, cut off spoiled and dried branches. After that, remove it from the support, lay it on the ground and cover it using dry grass and leaves, straw, sawdust.

Another option is the construction of a wire frame around the plant laid on the ground, covered with tar paper, film, roofing felt or a plywood box. At the same time, it is important to ensure that the shelter does not turn out to be airtight and has access to air.

Clematis usually winters well. It is much more destructive for him to delay the opening in the spring, by virtue of which he can vanish.

In the spring, it is necessary to free the plant from shelter as soon as the threat of night frosts has passed.

Care errors and their elimination

The beauty and health of any plant depends not only on the correct care. It is equally important to select plants designed for the climatic conditions of a particular region.

In case of any changes in weather conditions, it is necessary to carry out preventive examinations and measures in order to prevent the occurrence of various plant diseases.

A common mistake of inexperienced gardeners is improper watering of clematis, due to which its root system dies, and the stems become victims of diseases and pests.

Excessive dampness can cause damage to clematis by pathogenic fungi.

Most often, clematis is exposed to the following diseases:

  • Withering. It is caused by a fungus and is accompanied by a loss of elasticity of the shoots, after which they dry, wither, and the plant may die without treatment. The reasons can be stagnant moisture and poor soil drainage. Treatment consists in removing all damaged shoots and watering the plant with Fundazol solution (1 g per liter of water), spraying with 3% copper sulfate solution (in spring), regularly loosening the soil and removing weeds.
  • Gray rot. Plaque in the form of brown spots on leaves and shoots, covered with a grayish down. It usually appears in rainy times. To combat it, the affected areas are removed, and the plant is treated with a solution of Azocene or Fundazole.
  • Powdery mildew... It is caused by a fungus and looks like a whitish coating on the plant, similar to scattered flour. At the same time, its growth and flowering slows down. For treatment, spraying with a copper-soap solution (25 g per 250 g, respectively, diluted per 10 liters of water) or a solution of soda ash (40 g per 10 liters) is used.
  • Rust. Forms brown spots on the leaves and leads to their drying and deformation of the entire bush. A solution of potassium permanganate (medium strength) will help fight rust.

Pest and disease control

No less dangerous for clematis and the invasion of pests, such as:

  • Aphid. It settles on the underside of leaves, feeds on their sap and leads to drying and curling. To eliminate it, spraying with Fitoferm helps (2 mg per 1 liter of water).
  • Spider mite. Causes the formation of white dots on the bottom of the leaves and the covering of the plant with cobwebs, due to which it looks weakened. Insectoacaricides and acaricides (toxic drugs diluted at 1 mg per liter of water) are considered effective in the fight against it.
  • Slugs. They eat leaves and stems at night. They use ammonia (2 tablespoons per liter of water), which is used to treat the plant.

Slugs can be harvested by hand at nightfall

Breeding options

Clematis can be propagated in a variety of ways: by seeds, cuttings and layering.

Seeds

We plant large seeds in January, small ones in March:

  1. We select the planting material (preferably a new crop) and sort it.

    Clematis seeds are large, medium and small

  2. We prepare a container with soil (earth, sand, peat in equal parts).
  3. We sow the seeds shallowly, sprinkling them with a small layer of earth, compact them a little and water them.
  4. We cover the container with glass and place it in a room with an average temperature of 25ºC.
  5. We regularly ventilate and moisten the seeds, and after the first shoots we place the container in a fairly bright place, but protected from scorching rays.
  6. After the appearance of the first leaves, we dive the seedlings and plant them in separate containers.

    The completeness of seeds, even of the same type of clematis, may be different in different years - it depends, first of all, on weather conditions.

  7. With the onset of heat, we plant them in partial shade in the open field. Shoot tips require periodic pinching to stimulate root development. They need to be carefully covered for the winter.

By cuttings

Reproduction of clematis by cuttings is one of the most famous and popular methods of breeding this plant:

  1. In the fall, we choose a five-year-old bush (young ones react poorly to such procedures and will not be able to reproduce a new one).
  2. Cut off cuttings with at least two developed buds, leaving 2 cm above them and 3-4 cm below them.

    Roots will grow at the bottom edge of the cutting

  3. Before planting, we treat each shoot with Phytohormone.
  4. In a container with prepared soil (sand with peat in equal parts) we plant the cuttings at a slight slope and send it to the basement (with a temperature of 0ºC) before spring.

    Two cuttings can be planted in one container

  5. We periodically check the condition of the soil: it must be moist. To do this, spray it from time to time.
  6. At the end of winter, the container is moved to a room with a temperature of 10-15ºC.
  7. In the month of March, as a rule, the first shoots already appear, after which we transfer the container with them to the greenhouse.
  8. After the sprouts reach a height of 10 cm, pinch off the lower leaves to stimulate root growth.
  9. In mid-May, we plant the plants in open ground.

Video: reproduction of clematis by cuttings

Air layering

This is the simplest effective method that does not require any structures:

  1. In October, we select a bush for propagation, cut off all the leaves and faded buds from it to a well-developed bud.
  2. We carefully dig up the soil near the bush and form grooves about 6 cm deep.
  3. We carefully lower the shoots into the grooves, sprinkle peat, earth on them and, having compacted, cover the clematis, as for wintering.

By next fall, the shoots will be ready for planting. It is better to dig them out with a pitchfork so as not to damage the roots.

The most abundant flowering in clematis is observed in summer - from the end of June to August.

Testimonials

The choice of a variety suitable for climatic conditions, the correct planting site and optimal care will allow you to easily create a bright carpet of multi-colored clematis on the site, which will revive any gazebo, wall of an old building or veranda. And thanks to the varieties blooming at different times, there is a unique opportunity to admire the splendor of colors and shades from spring to autumn.

Clematis in the open field - planting and care



Clematis is a kind of decorative liana, strewn with many flowers of a wide variety of shades. Planting and caring for clematis outdoors is possible even for beginners, and recently flowers have gained immense popularity. These curly "bouquets" are increasingly used to decorate gazebos, fences, facades, or simply to decorate a flower garden and garden.


All neighbors to envy


Clematis care

After clematis is planted, it needs regular care. There is nothing difficult in this. The main thing is to pay attention to the flower in time.

For good development you will need:

  • watering
  • fertilizer
  • weed removal.

Watering

When watering, it is always worth remembering that the plant does not tolerate excess water. In the spring, it can be watered no more than once a week. One bush requires 0.5 buckets of water.

When summer comes, and with it comes a strong heat, watering is increased up to twice a week. The volume of water remains the same. You need to water the bushes only in the evenings.

Fertilizer

As for soil fertilization, it must be applied during the growing period. And when the first flowers appear on clematis, all feeding stops until autumn. Once a month is enough. This technique works for an adult plant.

In the first year after planting the plant, it is not fertilized at all. Since in the first year, the bush received all the required fertilizing when planting.

Good fertilizer for this plant, concentrate for strawberries. You can also use ordinary water in which raw unsalted meat was washed. Or buy a special product from a flower shop.

In the spring, when clematis wakes up from hibernation, it must be watered with a solution of chalk with the addition of copper sulfate. This will save him from many diseases.

It is not difficult to prepare such a mixture, for 15 liters of water you need to add 500 grams of chalk and 200 grams of copper sulfate. Mix everything well and water the plants at the rate of one bush ½ bucket of solution.

Weed removal

Regularly from the flower bed where clematis grows, it is required to pull out all the weeds.Since this plant takes all the moisture and nutrients for itself. The best option would be to sow with special grass all the flower beds where clematis grows. Such a procedure will help protect the bush from harmful plants, as well as save it from the strong sun.

This is the kind of beauty you can grow in your home

Species diversity

There are about 300 main species in the plant genus. Many of them have several dozen ornamental varieties. Botanists offer several classifications of these plants according to the location of the buds, the size of the flowers and other parameters.

Types and varieties of clematis with photos and names

There are many classifications of clematis. So, they are divided into groups of M.A. Beskaravaynaya, which take into account the origin of the species on the maternal line, uses the taxonomic system of M. Tamura, as well as the classification of L. Bailey, A. Raider, V. Matthews and others.

Beginners, as well as amateur gardeners, for the most part use the simplest classifications of clematis according to the size of flowers: small-flowered, medium-flowered and large-flowered. However, the most convenient classification system is as follows:

  • group A - flowering is observed on last year's shoots
