Planting

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 with soil, heel well in and water immediately. This climber will be happy anywhere - full sun or part shade.

Clematis 'Jackmanii' complements 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’.

Care

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.

Pruning Clematis ‘Jackmanii’

This is an early and large flowering Clematis and it can be lightly pruned in March. Prune all branches back to a strong pair of leaf buds. Remove dead and damaged stems and cut off any faded flowers during the summer. Clematis is deciduous. Branches from the previous year can be pruned right back to ground level in early spring.

Extra

Clematis 'Jackmanii' is a strong plant with dark blue flowers and creamy coloured stamens. While clematis does lose its leaves, this variety is very profusely flowering.

Clematis 'Jackmanii' is a summer flowering clematis and represents (not unexpectedly) the Jackmanii Group.
