Description / Empress™ Clematis

Plant Patent #16,072. Cultivar name: 'Evipo011'.

This regal Clematis grabs your attention and doesn't let go! Its large 4-5 inch flowers are so enchanting you'll hate to lose the sight of them. Fortunately, with its very long bloom time you will have at least 5 months to bask in their glory - usually more! Given something to climb, Empress can reach 6ft in height with an average width of 3 ft. Ever so floriferous, this flowering vine flaunts blooms by the dozen beginning in late spring and reblooms in waves until the fall. Carrying the shade of royalty, one would think that it would be hard to care for, but that isn't so. In fact this Clematis is quite low maintenance. It prefers overhead sunlight and moist cool roots so mulch is this Clematis' best friend. You can trust that this Empress will never cease to impress! Zones 4 to 9.

Customer Reviews

A Great First Experience With A Clematis!
Review by D. Dutton
I've always liked clematis but they've always been intimidating, they just seem like something you would really need an extra green thumb to grow. Reading the description i.e., it being easy to grow, would bloom the first year (which I kind of doubted), not minding clay soil, etc., and being on sale I thought why not give it a try?!? I received it about the first part of April, it was about 2"-3" tall, and thought I was already behind the 8 ball, but planted it and hoped for the best. I actually forgot about it until about the end of June and it just took off and started wrapping itself around the 3' stake I had next to it, and had reached the top in about 2 weeks. I was happy with that and then about a week later there was a large bud at the very top of the vine! It bloomed and lasted about 2 weeks. It's now Sept. 10 and it has 2 more buds and another flower. It's odd to see a vine that's about as thick as a piece of string with large 3"-4" flowers on it. The best purchase I've made in a long time!!!
