Buy Clematis 'Prince Charles' clematis (group 3): Mauve-blue flowers are bourne profusely

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 September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This late summer-flowering viticella clematis produces a mass of beautiful pale mauve/blue flowers which have a slightly darker band running through each sepal. These satin-sheened blooms can often be up to 10cm across with an attractive central crown of greenish-yellow stamens. A wonderful compact variety that is easy to grow, perfect for a smaller garden in a container or growing up a fence.

  • 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.

I would buy this again due to colour


I have it growing up a trellis. It is still rather sparse at the moment but I'm sure next year it will be stronger.

This is covering a large deciduous berberis. It's north facing and the flowers last well without fading. Puts on strong growth in the first year.



Lovely clematis, requires good position


Clematis Prince Charles is a really nice one and in its first year it flowered brilliantly here. IN its second/3rd year it has not. This could well be down to the rather strange conditions we have all had including a very dry spring (2021)




Disappointed - very small flowers and not many of them.


Trained up a fence.




Great clematis - photo does not do it justice


Clients garden




Lovely, healthy plant


This was a healthy, well grown and well packaged plant. It is thriving and has flowered prolifically this summer.

I want to grow a Clematis Viticella in a container in a partly shaded area . What size should the container be and what are the best varieties?


Hello, These best viticellas for pots are the ones that don't get too big - please click on the link below to view the most suitable. As for the pot size, the bigger the better is the rule of thumb (at least 45cm in diameter) - and make sure the plants are kept well fed and watered.
