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: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This new clematis is said to be a cross between a C. florida and C. integrifolia, so it has the potential to produce lots of flowers over a long period from late spring to early autumn. The flowers themselves are a rich shade of purple, and as they open, all the smaller, petal-like tepals form an inner ruff. It works well in pots or borders, and can even be grown in large hanging baskets and allowed to cascade - provided it is kept well fed and watered. Please note that the plant comes in a black plastic pot - not the one in the photographs, which has been potted up with a more mature plant.

  • Garden care: In early spring cut back the previous year's stems to a pair of strong buds about 15-20cm (6-8in) above ground level and apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the plant, avoiding the immediate crown.
