Its rich violet purple-blue sepals, silvery on the reverse with pink and deep red stamens are a wonderful sight to behold and never fail to gain attention.

A proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience, you can plant this clematis in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Top Tips

Plant with the crown of the plant 5-8cm deep to encourage new shoots to grow from below ground level. Clematis like a cool 'root run' so try and plant so that the roots are shaded. If you are planting in a sunny position, place some pieces of slate or flat stones on the soil after planting or use groundcover plants to keep the roots cool.

Care Information

  • Feed in spring with a general-purpose feed, avoiding the stems.
  • Mulch immediately afterwards with organic matter such as well-rotted manure, leafmould or garden compost.
  • Water regularly during periods of dry weather in the first few seasons after planting, especially for container plants.
  • Clematis in pots should be given a liquid feed through the summer and early autumn.
  • Prune in late winter or early spring and again after the first flush of flowers to maintain a framework of old wood.
  • We recommend cutting your clematis back to 30cm (1ft) the first spring after planting to encourage multiple stems which can then be tied it to create the framework for future growth
