Buy Clematis 'Madame Julia Correvon' clematis (group 3): Wine red blooms with pale yellow anthers

This climber is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to November
  • 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: 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.

Notes on Clematis 'Madame Julia Correvon'

"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"

Bought this clematis back in June last year. Unfortunately it didn't really survive the hungry slugs that year. It did come back this spring and produced lovely flowers throughout June. It's a bit small but I'm sure it'll get bigger next year.




Beautiful, healthy plant


Bought as an alternative ruby wedding anniversary present for a friend who loves her garden. A perfect colour for this purpose and she was delighted with it.

I would buy this again and recommend it to others.


A very attractive clematis with long lasting flowers. Flowers still there in late October.




Pretty flowers


Pretty small flowers and abundant.




Lovely delicate little thing


Bought very late in the season so didn't get very big last year, but coming back this year alread






I planted this clematis in a large pot next to a pergola and it was in bloom a long time. I was slightly disappointed with the colour as it looked red on my iPad but it is more of a purple/burgundy colour. Lovely plant nevertheless.


South East England


This is a lovely Clematis


This is only second year in the garden, but it is putting up strong buds in spite of nasty weather early March. As long as a good support is provided, it should flower well. As a viticella, it is vigorous.




Pretty plant


Beautiful colour. Only been planted a few months so not much growth but should be better next year.






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.

Perfect plant


This is a beautiful , fast growing plant. It is very attractive and produced plenty of flowers in the first year. I am looking forward to seeing it as it establishes. Has even grown in our very hard clay soil

Please could you recommend a 'slow released balanced fertiliser.' Thanks


Osmocote or Vitax Q4 would both be suitable for this.


When can I plant this please? I'm intending putting it in a large pot , but am unsure how big the root ball would grow? Thank you.


Hello, This plant is fully hardy so it can be potted up at any time of the year. I would say however that it will be a little easier to manage now, when all the top growth has been cut back. As for the rootball, it will fill the pot in time, but they tend to do quite well in large pots provided they are kept well fed and watered.


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, Clematis are sometimes prone to powdery mildew, which is often a result of them being too dry - please click on the following link for more information.


I have this plant and it is beautiful but how do I get it to flower lower down on the branches? I have a mass of flowers at the top and bare branches below. 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

Mike Simpson

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

Joanna Swainson

Thank you so much Helen, this helps a lot.

Joanna Swainson

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. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

Climbing Plant on a North-Facing Trellis Dear Sir/Madam, Could you recommend a climbing plant for a trellis? The trellis in question is set against my neighbour's wall, and faces northward. So, I'm looking for a plant to provide maximum, attractive, fast-growing coverage. Yours faithfully, Peter

Peter Lawson

Hello Peter, I have done a search on our Plant Finder and if you click on the following link it will take you to all the climbers which will grow on a north facing aspect and are fast growing (although keep in mind most plants are going into their dormant period now) I hope this helps.
