Spring is an excellent time to plant a viticella clematis, such as ‘Madame Julia Correvon’. It will have a chance to put its feet down and flower by late July. Climbers take up little ground room and viticellas, bred from a Spanish species, are drought tolerant and easy to prune. Just cut them back hard now. They flower on new wood. 'Purpurea Plena Elegans’, 'Polish Spirit’, ‘Romantika’, and 'Dark Eyes’ are all excellent viticellas

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to November
  • Flower colour: wine red bell-shaped flowers
  • Other features: long flowering period from mid-summer through autumn
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    From mid-summer to late autumn, wine red star-shaped flowers, with yellow anthers, cover the plant. It is a more compact variety which makes it perfect for growing in a container. As with most clematis of the viticella group it also shows good resistance to clematis wilt.

  • Garden care: Cut back stems to a pair of strong buds 15-20cm (6-8in) above ground level before growth begins in early spring. Mulch in late winter with garden compost or well-rotted manure but avoid the immediate crown.

Comments about Clematis 'Madame Julia Correvon':

Beautiful colour, and fast grower. It's doing well in my clay soil. The slugs love the young leaves and I nearly lost it, but happily it recovered and is so gorgeous, a beautiful Clematis.

    • Q:

      Hi, I bought a clematis- Madame Julia Correvon from yourselves about 3 years ago. It has recently developed a grey substance on the leaves as well as the stalks and I would like some advice on how it can be treated. My clematis flowers profusely in July but not during the rest of the summer months. What do you think could be the problem?

      Many thanks.

        Hello there
        This clematis if left unpruned can become rather top heavy, with tangled and bare stems with all the flowers at the top of the plant.
        Clematis are classed in groups for pruning, this is a Group 3 clematis, meaning it flowers in late summer on growth made in that season so should be pruned in late winter or early spring. So I would cut it back hard early next spring, when you can see some new buds just starting to show, to a pair of strong buds between 30-75cm above ground, then apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the plant after pruning, avoiding the immediate crown. Hope this helps

      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

      Climbers for North East facing wall

      Hi I was just wondering if you could give me some advice please. Our house is a Victorian end of terrace - the side of the house faces North-East. The side of the house is very bare (only two tiny windows on ground floor) and we would like to grow something up the wall. We have had trouble with graffiti in the past and want to paint the side of the house and then put trellis to about 7ft. Can you suggest something that would grow quite quickly please. Kind Regards Joanna
