  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained, neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Flower colour: deep blue
  • Other features: silvery seedheads
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This early spring-flowering clematis produces masses of nodding, deep blue, bell-shaped flowers with cream centres from April to May. An ideal climber for a north-facing site, the elegant flowers look lovely cascading over a pergola, garden fence or wall. The silvery seedheads, an important decorative feature, are retained throughout the summer.

  • Garden care: No routine pruning is necessary. If the spread of the plant needs to be restricted prune immediately after flowering, cutting back overlong shoots to healthy buds. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
