  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained, neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September

    Large, purple-blue flowers with handsome pointed petals and red centres from June to September. Since its introduction in the late 19th century this has been one of the most popular clematis. A free-flowering and reliable variety, it is ideal for training over a pergola or garden arch in full sun or partial shade.

  • Garden care: Remove dead and damaged stems before growth begins in early spring, cutting all remaining stems back to where strong buds are visible. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
