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 soil, neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Broad, bell-shaped, light to mid-blue spring flowers and mid-green leaves. This early spring flowering clematis is perfect for covering a north or east facing wall. The fluffy seed-heads, an important decorative feature, look fabulous glistening in the sun.

  • Garden care: No routine pruning is necessary. If the spread of the plant needs to be restricted prune immediately after flowering, cutting back overlong shoots to healthy buds. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
