The plant grows around other branches. We tie up the stems against a fence. We prune the plant in the early spring after the last frost of the season. Plant the perennial Clematis somewhere partially shaded. Keep the soil constantly moist. Water it more during dry periods.

Prior to planting your clematis give the roots a good soaking in a bucket of lukewarm water. Prepare a suitable hole in fertile, loose soil. Clematis thrives in a mix of nutritious compost and garden soil. Plant your clematis at the right depth - the top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Refill the hole, heel well in and water immediately. This climber will be happy anywhere - full sun or part shade.
Clematis with other plants
The Clematis is a good and hardy climber, ideal for adorning pergolas and fences. It is definitely a ‘must have’ if you have an unattractive wall. This particular clematis planted next to clematis 'Piilu' will be perfect with the two colours harmonising wonderfully. You will also achieve an amazing colour combination if you intersperse it with other climbing shrubs, for example, the climbing rose ‘Indigoletta, or the bicoloured rambler ‘Mystery Wonder’.
The clematis really dislikes dry soil, so water more often during dry periods. They like to keep their ‘feet' cool and moist whilst the foliage is in the sun - clematis will appreciate you planting low-growing plants around the base or covering with a mulch of garden compost mixed with well-rotted manure. This climbing plant grows well along a fence or pergola. Help your clematis to climb and fill in gaps by tying the new shoots to a support as they grow.
This is a late, large flowering Clematis and will flower on this year's wood. Clematis is divided into 3 different groups for pruning purposes and this one belogns in category 3 - pruning is usually required to encourage abundant flowering.
Prune all branches fairly hard back end February, beginning of March, to a strong pair of leaf buds. Snip off overblown flowers in the autumn. Rejuvenate the whole shrub by cutting hard back to ground level, all branches from previous years but this will lose you the earliest flowering.
This Clematis is a strong, abundantly flowering climber. Clematis does lose its foliage. This Clematis belongs to the summer flowering clematis and is a representative of the Jackmanii group.
