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

    Cheerful, yellow, lantern-shaped flowers with fleshy lemon peel-like petals from July to October followed by highly decorative, fluffy seedheads. This vigorous, late-flowering clematis looks lovely cascading over a sunny wall, pergola or arch. Where space is limited prune hard in February - left unpruned it can become a very large plant.

  • 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. If you want a larger plant, then no pruning will be necessar apart from thinning over-crowded stems in spring.

    Comments about Clematis tangutica:

    This was to replace one I had had for many years. The last one flowered sparingly at first but in later years was a delight in late summer. This one hasn't flowered yet but was only planted towards the end of the season.Arrived well packed and in good condition.

              Hello there
              Not quite- Clematis tangutica is the species whereas Clematis tangutica 'Bill MacKenzie' is a cultivar or variety of Clematis tangutica.
              Hope this helps

          • Q:

            I have lost a clematis to wilt. I am considering replacing this with another (tangutica) planting it in the same spot. Is this safe to do? I understand that wilt does not affect the root system. Thank you.

              Hello,

              Clematis wilt is a real problem with the larger-flowered forms, but the tangutica's are not usually susceptible, so I suspect the wilt has actually been caused by a cultural problem. With this in mind, it may be worth waiting to see if the plant starts putting on new growth again, otherwise it will be fine to replace it with another.

            Vigorous climbing plants

            Hi, I am looking for rapid growing climbers (evergreen and non-evergreen) that I can grow through trees without harming the host trees. The planting site is as follows:- -East facing but ultimately the aerial part of the growth will be facing west - Shaded at the base where the young plant will be started i.e.roots in shade but tip of young plant showing above adjacent hardstanding car park - Moist well draining soil Can you recommend some varieties? Many thanks, Roger

            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

              Hello Joanna, If you click on the link below it will take you to our fast growing climbers, which will cope with low light levels. If you click into each card you can then see the eventual height and spread of each plant - some of them are pretty big. http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/climbers/plcid.15/vid.186/vid.237/ I hope this helps.
