clematis (group 2)

2 lt pot (60cm cane) £14.99

This climber is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained, neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to June and September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Large, rose-pink, early summer flowers with deep reddish-pink stripes and mid-green leaves. This clematis is perfect for a sunny site, since the colour holds up better to the bleaching effects of the sun than other large-flowered varieties. Ideal for growing through a climbing rose, strong shrub or tree.

  • Garden care: Remove dead and damaged stems before growth begins in early spring, cutting all remaining stems back to where strong buds are visible. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
