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!

I bought this clematis some years ago and planted it in a pot for the patio. Every year it has increased its output of flowers and is a really wonderful clematis as it seems to bloom for easily two or three months, producing new flowers until around the end of June. I don't think I would put it in the garden as its colour wouldn't be so easy to see - it really is a wonderful plant to have on the patio.
