The Boulevard Acropolis Clematis offers everything you love about Clematis vines, but on a smaller scale! Boulevard Acropolis has vibrant magenta blooms with dark ventral veining and a yellow center. And you get the opportunity to enjoy these vibrant blooms twice every season! Boulevard clematis blooms in the early summer on old growth, and then blooms again in the late summer on new growth. The saturated magenta blooms make lovely cut flowers.
This is a beautiful compact clematis that is perfect for containers and small spaces. Try planting your Boulevard Acropolis clematis in a narrow garden bed or large container with a decorative garden bed. This is a hardy clematis that provides a dependable pop of color in locations where an aggressive vine just won’t do. Plus, it’s deer resistant!
Boulevard® Acropolis Clematis Care
Clematis loves to have its roots cooler than its vines. Plant Boulevard Acropolis clematis in a location where the roots get some shade and the leaves get at least four or more hours of sun per day. This could be in a location next to taller perennials, shrubs, or grasses. You can also create a cool environment for the roots by reapplying a thick layer of mulch every spring. An application of compost or a well-balanced fertilizer in spring will encourage vigorous growth and bloom in the summer. Keep the soil moist, but not too wet.
Clematis blooms on the previous year’s growth (old wood), and also blooms on new season growth at the end of the season (new wood). So this vine is in pruning group 2. Avoid pruning this plant heavily. If you’d like to prune for shape or tidiness, a light trim in early spring is best to maintain abundant blooms. Prune weak or dead steams at this time, and other stems should be pruned above new leaf buds.
Boulevard® Acropolis Clematis Spacing
Boulevard Acropolis Clematis is a smaller clematis variety that grows up to 4’ tall and 2’ wide. It can be grown on its own in a large container with at least a 12” diameter. Or, plant it in the ground with 2’ of space from other plants.
