Buy Clematis montana var. montana clematis (group 1) syn Clematis montana: Masses of early summer pink flowers

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, neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Beautiful mauve-pink flowers smother the plant in late spring and early summer, complementing the purple-flushed, mid-green leaves. This fast-growing montana clematis is ideal for covering a wall or fence in record time. Remember to support the plant well as it grows, as the foliage can get very dense.

  • Garden care: No routine pruning is necessary. If the spread of the plant needs to be restricted prune immediately after flowering, cutting back overlong shoots to healthy buds. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.

Healthy plant got going straight away


Beautiful for a partially shaded wall or plant to climb through trees. Healthy and easy to grow.




Vigorous, tough and very pretty.


Established really quickly in large wooden half barrel in spite of planting very early in the year and in freezing weather. Produced a sprinkle of flowers after only three weeks and, less than a year later, is well covering a 6ft x 8ft wattle fence. Can wait to see the pretty pink flowers this spring.
