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
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This late summer-flowering viticella clematis produces a mass of beautiful pale mauve/blue flowers which have a slightly darker band running through each sepal. These satin sheened blooms can often be up to 10cm across with an attractive central crown of greenish/yellow stamens. A wonderful compact variety that is easy to grow, perfect for a smaller garden in a container or growing up a fence.

  • 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.
