Buy Clematis 'Romantika' clematis (group 3): Stunning, almost black blooms

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
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    An unusual clematis with very deep purple flowers with contrasting pale yellow stamens. The blooms are produced from July through to September and looks particularly attractive when planted against a light background or growing through yellow-leaved shrubs. Prune back in early spring to a pair of strong buds about 20cm above ground level.

  • 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 certainly buy plants from Crocus again.


I am very happy with my Clematis considering this is its first summer.I bought this to run up a trellis covering a tall fence and judging by this first year it is going to do the job very well. I have bought many plants from Crocus and have been very happy with them all.

Excellent plant in top quality condition and growth.


Will be grown through a yellow rose climbing up the house wall.






Another excellent plant from crocus

masses of deep coloured flowers


Bought the plant last autumn and it grew so well. This summer it was full of flowers just like the second photo on the website. I had bought around 26 clematis this year from various places, from superstore, from local nursery, and from the most well known supplier and I have to say Crocus plants have shown the best results.

hi - I bought this clematis recently. After planting it seemed very happy and put on a lot of growth very quickly. Buds formed and it flowered, then it died! The top leaves are droopy and turning brown whilst lower down they are completely brown. There are no signs of new growth. Do you know what's happened and if there's any hope for it please?


These clematis are prone to wilt, so if this happened suddenly (and the plant did not dry out), then this could be the culprit. The good news is that if that is the case, then new shoots should appear from below ground level.


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
