Henryi Clematis is an essential garden staple, offering large white blooms during summer. Perfect for use as a group 2 large-flowered Clematis on trellises, fences, or walls – Henryi is an absolute garden must!
This vine thrives in full sun with well-drained and moist but not waterlogged soil conditions, with roots shaded by low shrubs or by heavy mulch layers.
Early Life and Education
Clematis Henri, an old English variety, is an attractive free-blooming large-flowered clematis that blooms freely from late spring to early summer with subsequent repeat blooms in late summer/early fall on both older and new growth. Boasting 6-8″ white blooms adorned with chocolate anthers, Clematis Henri makes for the ideal addition to fences or trellises in full sun conditions.
Henryi Clematis belongs to pruning Group 2, so should be pruned in late winter/early spring before its buds swell and begin to flower. Doing this helps promote second flush of flowering later in summer as well as help prevent withered plants.
This Clematis species prefers rich, well-draining soil with adequate drainage, keeping its moisture levels within optimal parameters but without overwatering. As it’s not resistant to extended periods of drought conditions, nitrogen fertilizer should be applied before flowering begins and phosphates throughout its growing season for best results.
Clematis Henryi is an easy and fast-growing deciduous climbing vine that adds structure to any garden, particularly when planted alongside roses where its sturdy stems provide support. Clematis Henryi can thrive anywhere with good drainage and partial shade; for optimal growth conditions it should have at least 6 hours of sun per day.
There are over 300 varieties of clematis, and their flowering times range widely depending on species; from spring-blooming herbaceous perennials to large flowered garden varieties.
Group 1 clematis bloom in early spring on old growth; group 2 varieties like Jackmanii and Wisley flower in midsummer before producing occasional blooms through fall, on both old and new growth. Group 2 should be pruned back immediately following its initial flower bloom in summer to maintain optimal performance.
Achievement and Honors
Clematis henri is one of the most beloved varieties among gardeners. A winter-hardy, dense plant that can reach 2.5 meters in height, its long branches gracefully wrap any vertical support and create a “flowering cloak” around any slender tree or make any ordinary fence bright and colorful.
This variety is distinguished by small inflorescences with white flowers featuring narrow petals and pubescent sewers that bloom from June to September, making this variety particularly beloved among gardeners due to its exotic appearance and gentle blooming nature. It is an extremely popular garden variety.
The variety falls under the third trim group and blooms annually on last year’s shoots in early spring. Each flower measures up to 15 cm in diameter with gently undulating petals featuring an intense saturation of pink with an orange strip running down its middle.
Clematis henri thrives in well-ventilated environments with consistently moist soil conditions. Accumulated water must be monitored carefully; for best results, water only when necessary and apply a light mulch layer around its base if the soil becomes too dry.
This clematis produces large (6 to 8 inch), snow white flowers centered with dark red stamens in summer. A repeat bloomer, this variety can be grown up a trellis or used as ground cover – it is deer resistant too and thrives best in full sun conditions.
Clematis henri vines require regular pruning in late winter or early spring to promote flowering, including removal of any withered or weak branches prior to cutting back, which helps promote optimal nutrient concentration in its leaves and stems.
Clematis flowers are among the most beloved garden flowers, beloved by gardeners for their beauty, versatility and ease of cultivation. Clematis can be grown to climb walls or fences; through trees or shrubs; some varieties even provide additional periods of interest with seed heads or another round of blooms.
Growing new clematis plants from cuttings is quick and straightforward, but not every attempt will succeed. To increase your odds of success, select a strong plant with lots of fresh green growth; starting out with 3-foot stems without flowers would be ideal.
Magnus Johnson divided this genus into 19 sections with subsections; Christopher Grey-Wilson subdivides it further into 9 subgenera containing Alpina, Armandii and Atragene groups.
