A climber with loads of flowers
We are just mad about them. The pale pink flowers of this Clematis montana "Rubens" in a nursery pot, that is. The clematis "Rubens" grows quickly and produces lots of little flowers. It is a real climber and can reach five metres in height. It can always use a helping hand to get further. Plant the clematis near a wall or divider, or have it grow along a pergola. In order for the plant to grow upwards, it needs to be secured. It is easily done using a rope, wire, or anything similar. The clematis will thrive in a spacious pot on the patio, roof terrace or balcony. For full growth, we recommend using three plants per metre.The "Rubens" begins blooming in the spring. The clematis is deciduous, so it loses its leaves in the winter. Cold temperatures are no problem for this winter-hardy climber. Pruning is not necessary. However, dead and damaged twigs should be removed. The clematis grows in humus-rich, moisture-retaining soil. Water it regularly to keep the soil moist. It's best to give them extra water during dry periods. And they need sufficient light in order to grow well. The clematis grows best in full or half sun.
