Excellent !!! Looks to be in a pot. Is it from your garden in Lahore? And is this & the others you mentioned available locally or where from are you planning to get these?

The photo is from my garden. Sweet Autumn Clematis is not so common even though a few nurseries have been offering it for the past 8-10 years. Not many nurseries are aware of it. It can be propagated easily through cuttings, layering or grown from seed. I intend to take cuttings after a month or collect the seeds. It self seeds easily.

The "Sweet Summer Love" is on my wish list. Currently i do not have it or it is available at the moment?

With winter coming what kind of care is best for clematis in pots? They are still green. Should I stop watering now and resume once they sprout?

Assuming that your Clematis are potted in a media having well drainage, watering requirements will be dictated by the grouping of the plant. There are varieties which will go into dormancy and some may be in growth phase.Those in dormancy would require little watering.

A rule of thumb that has worked well for me for almost all the plants is to buring your finger alteast 1 inch in the potting mix in which you have may doubt whether it requires watering. Water when if the soil medium is percieved to be dry by your dipped finger and do NOT water if the medium is moist.

Generally avoid heavy watering during the winters as Clematis hate wet sogging soil which can increase the chances of rot. Water only if the surface appears dry. Having them in pots gives you the flexibility to move the pots in a location where they get atleast 5 hours of sun during the winters. Even afternoon sunshine which may not be desirable during our hot summers are very beneficial during the winters.

Don't be alarmed if some of your Clematis die back and some of the varieties from the Integrofolia (herbacioius) and Texansis Group perform a vanishing act by dyeing back during the winter and re-appear duirng Spring.

To conclude, avoid heaving watering and water based on the method suggested above and try to ensure that they get 5-6 hours of sunshine during the winters even if it is afternoon sun.
