Guernsey Cream Clematis

Description
A unique color for a clematis, Guernsey Cream's large 5" flowers emerge with pistachio green central bars along each sepal. Each flower fades to creamy white as it matures. It'll bloom in early summer, and can bloom again in late summer with smaller flowers. They are gorgeous against a background of green foliage. While this vine thrives in sunlight, we find the blooms keep their color best when it's protected from the afternoon sun. It'll grow to a medium size, about 6–8' tall, ideal for trellises and obellisks. Clematis 'Guernsey Cream'

Guernsey Cream Clematis is in the YELLOW pruning category. It blooms best on old wood, but it can also bloom on new wood. Use caution when pruning to retain healthy stems from last season for best flowering. See our Stoplight Pruning Guide for more information.

This is followed by a second flush flowers appearing on the new growth. These flowers will likely be smaller than the first ones and flowers that were double the first time may be single the second time. The time to prune this group is in late winter or early spring. Dead and weak shoots should be removed and the remaining shoots cut back to 6-9 inches above a couple of well-developed buds.
