Buy Clematis 'Princess Diana' clematis (group 3): Minature pink tulip-shaped flowers


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

    Striking, bright pink, trumpet-shaped flowers with prominent, creamy-yellow centres from August to October and mid-green leaves. This late-flowering clematis looks lovely scrambling through a climbing rose or tree in full sun or semi-shade. The unusual, tulip-like flowers associate well with many medium-sized garden shrubs.

  • 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 planted a Clematis Pricess Diana on a large pergola and the first year it was beautiful. It flowered prolifically and looked great. Last year I pruned it hard in early spring and it grew away vigorously to around 8/10 feet but although I attempted to tie it in as it grew it got denser and denser and ended up as a huge wide mass with almost no flowers. This year it seems like the same thing is happening. Should I be removing most of the stems and just keeping say 6 or so? Could I try pruning it back now and just letting a few regrow as it's swamping the roses?

Hello, If it is too large and vigorous for the pergola, then yes, you could thin out some of the stems if you can untangle them without causing too much damage.

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
