Information

The flowers of clematis 'Princess of Wales' are large with overlapping tepals of pale lilac which have a slightly deeper bar along the centre. The stamens are of white filaments with red anthers.
Raised in 1875 by Jackmans of Woking, it was named for the Danish Princess who married Edward VII in 1863, she later became Queen Alexandra. The cultivar became extinct in the UK and was re-introduced by the late Jim Fisk with stock from Alistair Keay of New Zealand.

Cultivation Advice.

Large flowered clematis prefer a good quality soil with high nutrient levels and a soil which is moist but free-draining. Improve planting holes with at least 2 forkfuls of well rotted manure or garden compost and if you don't have these use a 'Soil Improver' compost. The Improvement material added should be placed under the root of the plant not around it. This encourages the roots to grow downwards and remain deep and cool during summer. If your clematis flowers in May-June(late spring), cut the dead flower heads when they have finished to encourage a second set of flowers to be produced in the late summer and autumn. Be prepared to wait for a couple of years before they will be at their best - Our saying is - 1st year = Roots, 2nd year = Shoots, 3rd year = Flowers!

Strong and well rooted

Clematis can be fussy plants but judging by the quality of this purchase I feel confident that it will show good results for the future. Would recommend.

Excellent plants.

I am pleased with the health and size of this plant. Has not flowered yet so cannot comment on this part.

Service and delivery was great.
