This climber is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Masses of dramatic, dark velvety-purple flowers from July to September and mid-green leaves. This vigorous viticella-type clematis looks stunning grown through plants with pale, silvery-grey or variegated foliage. Ideal for training through a strong tree or shrub in full sun or partial shade it is resistant to clematis-wilt and stands up well to wind.

  • 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.
