  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained, neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This wonderful variety has enormous, single flowers, which grow up to 18cm across. The colour is the palest shade of pink with rosy-lavender margins and stamens. The flowers have a beautiful satin sheen to them, and the under-side is a very deep rosy-lavender with maroon veins. The leaves are dark green and glossy and some may remain on the plant during milder winters. A great Clematis for a pot, provided they do not become too hot or dry out.

  • 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.

      Comments about Clematis 'Fond Memories':

      This was a clematis bought specifically as something to remember not only my Dad who had recently passed away, but also my Mother-in-Law. I loved the name and the unusual colours, but also the fact that it flowered for a long period and was very easy to care for.

      Beautiful, healthy and long flowering. Grown on south facing trellis to cover a bare wall and has grown vigorously since first planting in the summer. Flowers are prolific but a little smaller than pictured.

      • Q:

        Would it be possible to grow a clematis as a trailing plant . I was thinking of growing them in large pots positioned on a tall wall so they would trail rather than climb. Please advice if this could be possible.?

        Many thanks sue

          A:

          Hello,

          These plants have lax stems, so although their natural tendency is to reach for the shies, they will indeed trail if they do not have something to climb onto.

        Climbers for trellis with wildlife considerations

        Hi I have a bare trellis at the end of my garden which marks the end of my raspberry and rhubarb beds, and where my composting and comfrey live. I want to cover this trellis with something to give colour all the year round, even if that "colour" is green leaves. I also want to provide something beneficial to the wildlife. I had thought about growing an Ivy, with a Clematis. Would these two climbers work in a small area and would I get my combination of colour, all year interest and wildlife benefits? Thanks Mike

        • A:

          Hello Mike, The best climbers for wildlife are Hederas (Ivy) or Lonicera (Honeysuckles). These are both pretty big and vigorous plants though and your trellis sounds quite small. The ivy can be cut back very hard though, so perhaps your best option would be to use an ivy and then plant a smaller growing group 3 Clematis, which should be cut in early spring each year. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor
