Ville de Lyon is a hardy, profusely flowering variety with round, intensely carmine flowers and golden stamens. They bloom from late May to September, most intensively in the second half of summer. This clematis reaches 3-4 m in height.
General description: Ville de Lyon is a very popular large-flowered clematis variety thanks to its hardiness, profuse flowering and beautiful round, intensely carmine flowers. It reaches 3-4 m in height.
Flowers: This clematis has large flowers, 10-15 cm in diameter composed of 6 intensely carmine petals, with a pinkish strip running down the middle. When they wither their colour fades.
Blooming: Ville de Lyon blooms in late May and June on the previous year's stems, and more abundantly from early July to autumn on the current year’s shoots.
Leaves: Ville de Lyon has light green leaves.
Cultivation requirements: This clematis can be planted in sunny, semi-shaded or shaded spots. It likes locations that have lots of light, but not with too much direct sunlight. Location near walls with an eastern, western or northern exposure are ideal. For optimal growth, it needs moist soil rich in humus, with a neutral or slightly acidic pH. The substrate must be permeable (heavy, compacted clays are not suitable but sandy soils are also not advised).
Care: In autumn it is worth covering the base of the plant either with compost or decomposed, old or granulated manure, and in spring applying a mineral fertilizer is recommended. Regular generous watering is needed during the growth season (unless heavy rainfall occurs).
Pruning: Trimming a young clematis plant should not be feared – such pruning forces outward growth right from the base, and as a result the vine looks denser in later years. Ville de Lyon requires strong pruning in spring by cutting to a height of around 20-50 cm above ground. Later pruning of clematises that bloom in spring and early summer should be limited to removing dead or withered stems and if needed, adult plants can be trimmed to a height of around 1.5 m. Pruning is also advised after the first bout of flowering in late spring, so Ville de Lyon has a chance to bloom again on the current year’s shoots.
Props: This clematis easily creeps up all kinds of nets, poles, hung ropes, trellises, fences, pergolas and arbours. The elements of support should not exceed 1 cm in diameter. Thanks to its petioles, it can also climb up natural supports, such as deciduous and coniferous bushes and dwarf shrubs.
Overwintering: This clematis is frost resistant (in hardiness zone 4, withstanding -34°C). Protecting young seedlings for the winter is recommended, by piling a mound of soil or peat about 30 cm in height over the plant. This clematis is a deciduous vine.
