  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained, neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Flower colour: creamy-white
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The small, nodding, creamy-white flowers have a boss of purple-tipped stamens and appear freely for a long period throughout summer and early autumn. A wonderful climber for training over an obelisk in a large pot.

  • 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.

    Climbers to cover a Pergola

    Hello We are building a 13ft square x 8ft high pergola and want to have Clematis, with flower for most of the year, but also with vigorous growth to cover the roof of the pergola. What Clematis would you recommend or do I need to include climbers like Jasmine and Virginia Creeper to provide summer and autumn colour? Please advise Paul

      Hello Paul, I'm afraid no single Clematis will flower throughout the year, however you can get different types to flower at different times of the year. As a very general rule the group 1 Clematis are early flowering, the group 2's mid and the group 3's late, so this will help you narrow down your selection. The following link will take you to the few evergreen Clematis, some of which are quite vigorous - you can see the eventual height and spread of each to the right of the photos once you open up each page. http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/climbers/clematis/plcid.15/plcid.16/vid.24/ I hope this helps.
