Advantages and disadvantages
The advantages of the variety are:
- lush and long flowering (for more than 2 months),
- the longevity of the vines and the ability to grow the flower mass every year
- unpretentious care,
- winter hardiness and disease resistance.
- the only drawback can be considered burnout in the middle of the flower in the sun.
The color of the flower is not so bright, but the decorative effect is not lost.
There are several ways of breeding ville de lyon species:
Clematis flower close up
- Green cuttings
Ville de lyon propagated by cuttings during the budding period is the period from the end of May and all of June. Take the cuttings from the middle part of the shoot, cut into segments with one internode and two leaves. Below the internodes leave 3-4 cm, above 1-2 cm.
The easiest and most reliable method of reproduction. In the grooves prepared by the bush ville de lyon, 5-7 cm deep, the shoots are laid. Shoots pin down to the ground, fall asleep light nutrient soil and watered. Over the summer, a well-developed shoot with its root system is formed from each internode. It is better to divide and settle the slides next spring. In the winter, the site with the layering need to mulch.
- Dividing bush
If they divide a young bush (5-6 years of age), then it is dug, removed from the ground and divided into parts, leaving 2-3 shoots in each.
When dividing old, powerful bushes from the ground they are not removed, so as not to hurt much, but separate part of the rhizome with shoots and precipitate.
Planting and care
Ville de lyon is planted in sunny places, but since their roots suffer from overheating, the lower part of the plant should be shaded or the plantings should be placed so that in the midday hours the plants are in the shade. Flowers do not like drafts and areas with stagnation of water, over-wetting the root system can lead to the death of the plant.
Clematis can be planted with an open and closed root system.
- Clematis can be planted with an open root system both in spring and in autumn.
A hillock is poured from the ground in the landing pit, on which the straightened roots of the seedling are placed. The root neck of the seedling should be 10-15 cm below the soil level. Planting pit with seedlings filled with fertile soil and well watered.
- Planting flowers with a closed root system can be made during the whole growing season. They are planted in prepared pits with a size of at least 60 * 60 * 60 cm, with a good drainage layer and fertile soil, filled with humus or compost.
When planting several clematis, the distance between them must be at least 1 m.
Further care of the seedlings consists of:
- in irrigation with subsequent loosening and mulching of the soil under the seedlings, in order to avoid overdrying of the soil and overheating of the roots,
- in obligatory plant feedings, starting from the second year of life.
a) in the spring, with the beginning of the regrowth of shoots, nitrogen fertilizers, an extract of mullein or bird droppings are applied.
b) during budding, feed with complex mineral fertilizers.
c) during flowering, fertilizing is given every two weeks alternating organic fertilizer with mineral fertilizer.
d) in August-September, ash is introduced for better aging of the shoots.
- in pruning shoots. Clematis Wil de Lyon belongs to the trimming group 3, i.e. it blooms only on shoots of the current year. Clematis belonging to this group, begin to grow new shoots every spring from the ends of the old ones, so they require a cardinal annual pruning. It consists in removing all last year's shoots, only the lower strong pair of buds is left, new powerful shoots will grow from them.
- Suspension in development in the first year after planting is possible in case of improper care, namely the lack of moisture. It is necessary to restore sufficient soil moisture and apply nitrogen-containing fertilizers with microelements.
- when the tops of young shoots dry out, it speaks of a lack of moisture in the soil or the presence of aphids on the shoots,
- at the age of 5-6 years, the plant may experience shredding of flowers, which indicates insufficient nutrition and watering,
- slow growth and growth of shoots indicates insufficient deepening of the seedling when planting, it is necessary to pour a fertile soil layer of 10-15 cm under clematis.
Preparing for the winter
Clematis Ville de Lyon winter hardy and with a light shelter for the winter can withstand temperatures up to 30-35 ° C. After the onset of stable frosts, the soil under clematis bushes is covered with humus or fallen leaves, and shoots taken from supports are laid on top. They will serve as additional shelter bush. In the spring, these shoots will be cut off.

Protection against diseases and pests
Clematis is practically not affected by pests, but a plant can be affected, especially by a young, gall nematode. Signs of defeat are the appearance of blisters on the roots (Gauls), which, when combined, form large conglomerates. Infected plants lag behind in development, leaves and flowers become small, flowering stops, roots die.
Clematis affecting fungal diseases include:
- wilt (wilt) - the most dangerous disease leading to the death of the plant. For the purpose of prophylaxis in spring and autumn (before shelter for the winter), clematis is poured with lime milk, and during the growing season, the soil under clematis must be watered with a pink solution of manganese or a solution of foundationol,
- rust - the appearance of red bloated spots on the leaves. For the purposes of prophylaxis, it is necessary to spray vegetative plants with 0.5% Bordeaux liquid or preparations of Polykh, Oxyh, Skor, Bayleton,
- powdery mildew - appearance on the leaves, shoots and flowers of white bloom, followed by drying. Control measures include treating diseased plants with Fundazol, Topsin-M or colloidal sulfur.
Having planted a clematis bush Ville de Lyon in your garden, you can already stop. You will want to decorate your garden with arches of clematis, plant this wobbling beauty at the gazebos. Plant and have fun!
Clematis and its description
This plant is a perennial climbing shrub, usually reaching a length of more than 3 meters. The flowers of this plant are quite large, consisting of 5 or 6 petals. Depending on their age, they may have a crimson or purple color. Flowering of clematis vil de lion occurs from mid to late summer. The advantages of this plant include:
- Relatively long bloom (a little more than 2 months).
- Clematis is a perennial plant that grows every year.
- Does not require high costs for care.
- Good winter tolerance and disease resistance.
The advantages include the ability to grow it from the seeds of the house.
Description of growing from seed
You can start growing plants from seeds at home, followed by transplanting into the ground. The first thing you need to buy seeds in a specialty store. Then, using a fleece or bandage, soak them. Sprouted seeds transplanted into small containers with fertile soil. As soon as sprouts appear, it will be possible to transplant the plant into the open ground. It is advisable to immediately determine the place of planting and prepare it in advance.
Landing site should not be too sunny. It is necessary to prepare in advance and support on which the plant will curl. Usually they knock together a wooden lattice with diamond shaped cells. So that you don’t have to finish building it, you must make it at least 2 meters high. Before landing, it is necessary in the hole add a little superphosphate, ash and humus. With excessive acidity of the soil, adding lime is useful. At the bottom of the hole can be laid out of small pebbles drainage layer.
Before lowering the sprouts in the hole, their roots should be dipped in a clay solution. Dropped sprout sprinkled with earth and from above the planting ground mulch. When planting between the holes adhere to a distance of at least 80 centimeters.
Consider several types of plant reproduction.
- Cuttings. Usually this method is carried out reproduction at the beginning of the summer period. Take the middle part of the stem with two leaves. It is cut off with such a condition that below the first leaf we leave 3 centimeters of the stem, and above the second - 2 centimeters. We treat the long end of the trimmed stem with “root” or “heteroauxin” and plant it in a small container with soil.
- Layering. With its simplicity and reliability, this method is especially popular with gardeners. First, the bush, which is subject to reproduction, must be grooved to a depth of 10 centimeters. Then the plant stems are placed in them and fixed in something so that they do not rise. Sprinkled with earth, shoots are watered. During the summer period, a good escape with a root system is obtained from each layer. It is better to lay down the layers next year.
Dividing bush. The old bush is divided into young shoots along with the root system. A large bush is not being dug out and in new ones there must be at least two shoots. Younger shrubs should be dug before cutting.
Caring for liana
So, with a description of the methods of planting Wil de lion, we figured out. Now we are interested in further care of the plant. Let's start with watering. Liana likes soil to be constantly wet. Therefore, in the spring it is necessary to ensure that the soil of the bush does not dry out. In the summer modest period, watering should be done at least once a week. In dry times, the number of irrigations and their volume is required to increase. But remember that excessively flooded plant may die, due to lack of oxygen for the root system.
After each watering, it is necessary to weed the ground under the bush. If the ground is quite wet, then instead of watering you can simply loosen the ground.. Loose soil does not allow moisture to evaporate and, thus, longer persist in the ground. During loosening, the soil receives oxygen, which is so necessary for the development of clematis vil de lion.
One of the most important ways to care for a plant is to mulch the soil under bushes. Use for this you can humus, leaves, moss, peat, etc. The benefits of this method can not be underestimated.
Powdered soil longer holds moisture, so it is desirable to hold it in early spring. And also in these places weeds grow less often, and the soil is saturated with microorganisms that breed under bushes.
If your land plot has a bias, then mulching helps to keep the plot blurred from rain and watering. And also the leaching of nutrients from the soil, so necessary for the development of plants, will be suspended. In addition, it contributes to the emergence of earthworms, which help supply oxygen to the clematis of Ville de lion. Powdered earth does not allow the soil near the root system of the plant to heat up significantly on sunny days, but on cold days, on the contrary, it retains heat.
Pest and plant disease control
This shrub is very resistant to pests and diseases. Only, the defeat of a young bush can occur gall nematode. You can learn it by swelling on the root system. Such plants must be removed to prevent further infections. For prophylaxis, dill, parsley, coriander, etc. are usually planted next to the bushes.
And also to the diseases of clematis include:
- Wilt. It is considered the most dangerous disease that contributes to the withering of the plant. For the prevention of spring and autumn plants are treated with lime mortar.
- Rust. Rust-like spots appear on the leaves. For prophylactic purposes, plants are treated with the preparations Polykhy, Skor, etc.
- Mealy dew. White scurf appears on the plants. Help in the fight against it "Fundazol", "Topsin-M".
If you properly care for this flower, it will always delight you with its beauty.

Features landing clematis Ville de Lyon
Quite a bit of attention and the right choice of a place to plant a seedling give an excellent result. The lush bush will please with abundant bright flowering and will beautify even the most modest corner of the site.
The ideal option is a plot that is in the sun. Not bad flower feels in the penumbra. But if the plant is planted under the trees, the bush will simply stop growing and wither.
When choosing a site, it is important to ensure that there is no reservoir near. Excess moisture is also destructive for this wonderful plant.
It is best to plant the plant in the fall. Do it from September to October. But, if there is no such possibility, then the cage is carried out in the spring.
The hole for the seedlings make a depth of about 60 cm in diameter. This is necessary in order to be able to decompose well the long roots of clematis.
Pour the drainage layer on the bottom of the recess. To do this, use broken red brick, pebbles or expanded clay. Then lay a small ball of humus.
If during planting the plant is well fertilized, then for two years, you can forget about dressing.
Planted seedlings at a distance of at least 80 cm from each other. Before the procedure, the roots will need to soak in the growth promoter. This will speed up the rooting process.
Deepen the plants so that the growth point was under the ground by 8 cm. This is necessary so that the young shoots that appear very early do not freeze.
In the spring, when the shoots reached 5 cm, you will need to establish a support. Its height should not be less than 2 m, and its width should be 1.5 m. A mesh netting is an excellent option. On it the liana will be able to trail evenly and easily.
In the hot season, the plant requires daily watering. It is only necessary to carry out the procedure early in the morning or late in the evening. In the middle of the day, irrigate the vine is not worth it, since it can only harm it.
Weeding around clematis is performed at least once a week. It is best to hold it immediately after watering. Weeding will get rid of weeds and dense crusts that form on the surface.
The first feeding is carried out in the third year of life. In the spring, when new shoots appear, nitrogen fertilizers are applied. Complex drugs are used during the formation of buds.
Clematis Ville de Lyon: group trimming
The plant belongs to the third group of pruning. Therefore, in the first year after planting, if buds appear on the vines, they should be removed. It is recommended to carry out all procedures with a pruner or a sharp knife.
Since the growth of new shoots begins at the ends of old twigs, pruning is carried out annually.
- In late autumn, shoots should be cut to almost the ground (leave a maximum of 20 cm). In areas with severe winters, after carrying out this procedure, it is necessary to cover the branches. To do this, use agrofibre or thin branches of trees.
- In the spring, as soon as the young shoots appear on the soil surface, it is necessary to carry out sanitary pruning. In this case, remove all weak and damaged shoots. It is also recommended to cut a little strong shoots. This will provide abundant and lush bloom in the future.
If done correctly, then in the fourth year of life, clematis will delight in lush flowering.This is due to the fact that during the first three years, the vine is spending all its strength on the development of the root system.
Fight against diseases and pests
This variety is quite resistant to various diseases, but despite this, the flower is able to fade and lose its attractive appearance. In this case, it is important to determine in time what caused the change.
Rust. This is a disease that affects the leaves. On the surface of the plates appear red spots that can combine and form large-scale circles. To get rid of this problem, it is necessary to spray the plant Bordeaux mixture.
Wilt. The first sign of the disease is the wilting of the upper part of the shoots. In order to get rid of the wilt, it is necessary to remove all the affected branches, and pour the bush with lime milk. Also a good option is a weak solution of potassium permanganate and foundation.
Nematode. This problem is quite rare. Nematode appears as a result of improper care. A sign of the disease are small leaves and flowers. To get rid of the disease does not necessarily resort to chemicals. It is enough to plant dill and parsley near the bush. These are the plants that are perfectly fighting the nematode.
Butterflies. Signs of such insects are twisting of leafy plates. In order for the shoots not to lose their foliage, it is necessary to start spraying the vine with insecticides as early as possible. These drugs are sold in any specialty store.
If you choose the right place for planting and observe watering, fertilizer, then the flower will certainly please with beautiful and lush flowers.
"Wil de Lyon" - is one of the most popular varieties of clematis, reaching a length of 3-4 m. The shrub has small oval leaves, shaped like a heart. The flowers of a plant of this sort are large (about 15 cm in diameter), with 5-7 regular-shaped petals and large stamens in the center. Immediately after the formation of flowers vines bright pink, the petals on the edges can be fuchsia. With an excess of sunlight, they "fade" to pale pink, almost white. The bush, which has been around for many years, forms smaller flowers and purple hues. Creeper shoots are brown or brown in color.
The plant blooms profusely and for a long time: from the last days of July to the very beginning of frosts.
Advantages of clematis "Wil de Lyon" are:
- prolonged lush bloom and annual flower mass gain,
- fast growing season
- unpretentious care,
- resistance to diseases and low temperatures.
An ideal place for planting shrubs would be a plot in the penumbra: clematis loves the sun, but its flowers tend to fade under direct scorching rays. The plant does not tolerate excess moisture, which is why it is not grown in areas with high "standing" of groundwater.
Clematis is usually planted both in the fall and in the spring, but the best months for planting a supposedly hybrid variety “Wil de Lyon” are September and October. The size of the pit for planting should be at least 60 cm in diameter. At its bottom lay a layer of drainage (fragments of brick or large pebbles), and then humus. If clematis when planting is well fertilized, the bush will not need additional feedings for about 2 years.
Seedlings have at a distance of at least 80 cm from each other. Before planting clematis roots, it is recommended to dip them in a clay mash. Scrub the bush so that the growth bud is located 8 cm below the soil level. In spring, the clematis “wakes up” very early in the spring, starts to grow, and it can be still cold on the surface. To young shoots did not die from frost, they must be located underground.
Shrub needs support. Its recommended height is not less than 2 m, width - from 1.5 m. A mesh netting, according to which the climber can easily climb up, will be an ideal option for a support. It is recommended to install the grid immediately, so as not to damage the roots of the bush at a later date. For easy shading of the soil over the rhizomes around the clematis planted low plants.
Liana needs weekly watering. In hot weather, the number of irrigations should be increased. From the spring we carry out weeding of the upper layers of the soil (2-5 cm) in order to get rid of the soil crust and weeds. Thus, the soil is enriched with oxygen, and the plant receives the necessary nutrients. In subsequent times, weeding is carried out after each watering or rain. Loosening is best when the ground is wet, but not wet or too dry.
Also, the plant needs a systematic mulching of the soil. On hot days, the mulch soil is protected from overheating in the sun, and in cold weather it keeps the roots warm.
With the onset of spring, when the plant begins to release new shoots, the soil is fertilized with nitrogen compounds. During the budding period, it is recommended to apply complex mineral fertilizers.
Clematis pruning group "Wil de Lyon" - 3 (it blooms on the shoots of the current year). In the fall, clematis shoots are cut dramatically, leaving no more than 20 cm in length. In regions where the air temperature falls below −25, it is recommended to cover the plant for the winter.
With the arrival of spring, new shoots sprouting violently, and as soon as they appear out of the ground, they do sanitary pruning - remove the weakest ones. Many gardeners also recommend shortening strong shoots left to grow in order to promote more flowering shrubs.
The first 2-3 years after planting clematis spends the main forces on the formation of a powerful root system, which is why the full bloom at the vine can be observed only by the 4th year after planting.

You can buy strong grown seedlings that easily tolerate transplanting, and in just two or three years you can get about a dozen strong mother plants. It is also not difficult to grow this beautiful vine from seed planted, which soon after transplantation will reach the size of an adult plant. Successful cultivation of clematis from seeds will largely depend on the quality of the seed used.
Planting a plant
This flower with the same success grows in sunny areas and in the shade. It is best to plant it in the shade of trees, which will prevent the plant from burning out in the sun, but at the same time the shrub will receive the amount of life-giving light it needs. Choosing a site for planting, you should pay attention to the depth of groundwater. If the underground water is at a depth of no more than 2 meters, then a broken brick or other drainage should be filled into the landing pit.
Planted with clematis seeds can be both in open ground and grown seedlings at home. For self-cultivation of seedlings using purchased flower ground, in which in two or three weeks the first shoots appear, and literally in two months, it is possible to transplant the grown plants into the open ground. Growing clematis at home, you should water the plants every two or three days, and feed them with a light solution of organic matter or purchased flower fertilizers.
Growing clematis, the most decorative plants can be achieved in the nutrient soil. It is necessary to plant seedlings in the prepared land, which prepared from the following components:
- A bucket of humus.
- Wood ash - 400 g
- Superphosphate - 50 g.
- Lime in alkaline soil - 200 g
When planting bushes, it is necessary to maintain a distance of about 80 centimeters between them. It is best of all to carry out such work in September-October, but clematis planted in spring do not take root well and then slowly grow. When planting, you should pay attention to the location of the lower point, which is buried below the ground surface by 7-8 centimeters. This will protect the shrub from overheating in the hot season and freezing in the cold. Such in-depth planting stimulates the subsequent emergence of lateral shoots.
Clematis for growth will require support with a height of not less than 2 meters and a width of 1.2 meters. As such a support, you can use a netting or other similar structures to which the vines are tied.
It is not possible to use a temporary support, so you will have to take care of the supporting structure even before planting. Pristvolny circle after planting seedlings covered with mulch, and in cold regions of the plant is further covered with fir branches.
Proper shrub care
Caring for shrubs does not pose any difficulty and consists in watering, pruning, and making appropriate fertilizers. Each summer resident gardener will cope with cultivation on a personal plot of this ornamental plant.
Particular attention should be paid to pruning the plant, from the correctness of which will depend on the decorative clematis ville de lyon. The third group of pruning clematis involves shortening shoots in spring and autumn. Shrubs should be pruned annually, removing old shoots in the spring, which only weaken the bush. For this work, use extremely sharp shears.
Clematis pruning should be performed using the following technology:
- Shoots are shortened by about 10 millimeters above the level of the kidney. At each shoot there must be at least three strong buds, from which strong shoots will soon sprout.
- All damaged, dry and old parts of plants are removed.
- In spring, clematis is cut to a height of about 30 centimeters, which stimulates subsequent flowering.
- Before the onset of winter, the flower is cut, leaving no more than 20 centimeters in height of the stem. Otherwise, in the future to achieve decorative flowering will be problematic.
Even a strong pruning will not be able to damage the shrub, which grows quickly, increasing the size of the season in two or three times. It is not recommended to leave clematis without pruning, since the chaotic growth of branches can ruin the flower, and later it will be impossible to restore the plant with the proper care.
Watering clematis is recommended twice a month, as the soil dries. For irrigation use warm settled water, irrigating only the roots, as water accumulated on the foliage and buds can damage them, leaving sunburns.
Feed the shrub recommended three times per seasonusing universal fertilizer for flowers. You can also use well-rotten humus, which is buried in the surface soil. Excellent results are shown by feeding with a solution of mullein and other organic matter.
Before the onset of cold weather after trimming the bush, it will be necessary to cover it with fir branches or mulch with a layer of old foliage. With proper warming, a strong plant will easily carry the winter, quickly growing up in the spring.
Treatments for insects and diseases
Clematis ville de lyon often suffers from wilting and infestation. The cause of this wilt is most often fungal diseases, including powdery mildew and fusarium. As a preventive measure, it is recommended that plants be treated in early spring with a 1% solution of copper sulphate or bordeaux mixture. The same treatment should be repeated in the fall after completion of flowering.
If pests are detected, the shrub can be treated with various fungicides. On sale today you can find completely safe agrochemicals that can be used even during the period of active flowering of ornamental plants.
