Clematis Sugar Sweet Blue flowers April and May and can grow rapidly to about 8 feet high. Prune back stems to about 2-4 feet each year after flowering to a neat and tidy shape.
Previously named clematis 'Blue Musk' in error.
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!

Pretty, lots of flowers
The plant seems to have settled in well, although there were a lot of roots in the pot. As yet the scent is very mild, hoping it gets stronger as the plant matures.
