Josephine™ Clematis is a double-flowered variety that marches to its own beat. The outer petals, usually numbering eight and quite large, emerge green if blooming in the shade and mauvy-pink or lilac when blooming in the sun. The inner flower then appears and is made up of multiple layers of slender, pointed, frilly petals and varies in color from dark to light pink depending upon the amount of light and time of year. Finally, a pompom appears in the center in hues of greenish-pink to cream. Josephine flowers on both old and new wood. Typically, little pruning should be done. Clematis require moist soils to grow well. In northern gardens the do best in full sun but prefer lightly shaded areas in southern gardens. Deer seldom bother clematis.
