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

    Delicate, sky blue summer flowers, pinkish-red at the base, with contrasting pale yellow centres. This vigorous, late-flowering clematis makes the perfect companion for a yellow climbing rose, such as 'Golden Showers'. Although young plants have a tendency to wilt, they will outgrow this. Thrives in full sun or partial shade.

  • 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.

    • Q:

      Today, while clearing dead leaves and weeds around my Perle d'Azur, I cut the stem, almost at ground level! Help please. What are the chances it will grow back next season? It's planted at the base of a north-facing wall and it was planted 18 months ago. Good flowering this year.

        Hello there
        What a shame! It might well be fine but you won't know until next year now. Next spring I would apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the plant, 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
