Many choice and rare cultivars are to be had from mail order and online catalogues. Specialists regularly put on disp lays in national flower shows such as the Chelsea Flower Show. In theory, it is possible to have a clematis in flower at any time throughout the year. Many varieties provide a second period of interest with a flush of flowers, or decorative seed heads. They will grow in any good garden soil. The roots usually require a moist, cool substrate, while the herbage can take full sun. Some more delicate cultivars such as 'Nelly Moser' do better in light shade. Many clematis can be grown successfully in containers. Pruning Different varieties and cultivars require varied pruning regimes from no pruning to heavy pruning annually. The pruning regime for a cultivated clematis falls into three categories: Vigorous species and early-flowering hybrids do not require pruning, other than to occasionally remove tangled growth (as in C. armandii, C. montana, and C. tangutica) Large-flowered hybrids blooming in early summer on the previous season's growth can be pruned lightly in the dorma nt season for structure Late-flowering hybrids which bloom on the current season's growth can be pruned back to a pair of buds in the dorma
