The vines will ultimately reach 9 to 10 feet in height/length with a spread of approximately 6 feet.
Pink Mink Clematis Vine Care
Pink Mink Clematis is deciduous so it will lose its leaves in the fall. It blooms on new vines, so it can be cut back to a pair of buds about 6 to 12 inches above the ground in the spring. This plant can be used on a trellis or fence, in borders or climbing over shrubs. It’s disease resistant and needs little care besides watering during dry periods. This clematis is in group 3, which means it blooms on new wood. Because of that, the best time to prune is either late winter or early spring. You can cut all the way to the ground if you choose to.
Pink Mink Clematis Vine Spacing
It’s often grown as a focal point in the garden or over an arch or covered walkway. It can also be grown in a large container. Space plants 72 to 78 inches apart in a garden setting.
