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 and June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Beautiful mauve-pink flowers smother the plant in late spring and early summer, complimenting the purple-flushed, mid-green leaves. This fast-growing montana clematis is ideal for covering a wall or fence in record time. Remember to support the plant well as it grows, as the foliage can get very dense.

  • 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.
