Planting and flowering details
Show moreMake sure that the root balls are soaked well before planting – place the climbers in a bucket of lukewarm water prior to planting. Prepare a large hole for each of the clematis and loosen the soil with a fork. Place the Clematis roots at the right depth in the hole – the top of the root ball should be just below ground level. Refill the hole with soil and press down firmly. Water your Clematis immediately after planting. Clematis thrives in nutritious soil mixed with well rotted garden compost. These climbers need a place in full sun or half shade.
Clematis combinedThe Clematis is a good and hardy climber that can effectively decorate a pergola, fence or climbing frame. For special effects they can be planted combined with other shrubs. For example interspersed with a vigorous shrub or next to the beautiful dual rose ‘Mystery Wonder’! Or plant at the back of the double columbine Aquilegia vulgaris var. stellata ‘Clementine Salmon Rose’ and Aquilegia vulgaris var. stellata ‘Black Barlow’. The flowers of these varieties have many affinities with those of the variety viticella double Clematis ‘Elegance’ and offer excellent protection for the base of the clematis.
