This vigorous growing, compact clematis will produce an abundance of particularly attractive double blooms up to 12.0cm across. Flowering from late spring through the summer the individual flowers can last for up to four weeks. As they age the outer sepals fall away leaving their central pompoms for additional interest.

Easy to grow in moist, well-drained soil. For the best colour it prefers full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Deadhead after the first flush of flowers to promote new blooms.

PRUNING GROUP 2

Pruning will help keep your clematis vines healthy.  Pruning the dense tangle of stems opens the remaining shoots to air and light which encourages healthy growth and reduces the incidence of rot and disease.

Group 2 Clematis bloom in late spring on last years growth and again in summer on the new growth.  This group require a little more care when pruning as if you cut back too heavily after the first flush you will reduce the number of flowers on show in summer.

Prune back lightly to a set of strong buds in winter and remove any dead stems and trim to tidy the plant. After the first flush of flowers in spring, remove the spent flowers to encourage new growth and a stronger second flush in summer. Feed with a good quality liquid fertiliser after pruning to encourage growth.
