Spring is an excellent time to plant a viticella clematis, such as ‘Polish Spirit'. 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’, 'Etoile Violette’, ‘Romantika’, and 'Dark Eyes’ are all excellent viticellas

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

    Saucer-shaped, rich purple flowers with deep red centres from July to September and dark green leaves. This late-flowering clematis is perfect for growing over a pergola or through a shrub, tree or climbing rose in full sun or partial shade. An easy-to-grow variety, it is resistant to clematis-wilt and damage from moderate winds.

  • 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 'Polish Spirit':

    Hugely floriferous - hundreds of blooms throughout high summer and through autumn too. A real show-stopper which made the neighbours pass positive comment in our shared space.
