Clematis "Olympia", Purple, with Climbing Rack

Clematis 'Olympia'
A compact climber. Or is it a hanger?
An attractive new concept. The clematis "Olympia" in a nursery pot is a compact grower. This clematis produces loads of flowers and even comes with a climbing rack! The clematis "Olympia" is a compact grower, never exceeding 1.5 metres in height. Its flowers are a lovely purple. The clematis can also be planted in the garden or in a flower pot on a patio, roof terrace or balcony. If you want the plant to grow higher, secure stems that outgrow the rack to another base. It is easily done using a rope, wire, or anything similar. The compact growth of the clematis means it can be hung from a basket as well. Of course, it should be removed from the climbing rack for that. For full growth, we recommend using three plants per metre.The "Olympia" begins blooming in spring. The clematis is a deciduous plant. 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.

Make sure that the clematis roots are well-moistened by soaking overnight in a bucket of lukewarm water. Prepare a suitable hole in good and thoroughly loosen the soil. Your Clematis will thrive in a mix of nutritious, well-rotted manure and garden soil. Plant the clematis with roots at the correct depth - the top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil, heel well in and water immediately after planting. Clematis prefers a sunny, partly shaded spot.


Clematis dislikes dry soil, so water more often during dry periods. They like to keep their ‘feet' cool and damp - clematis will appreciate you planting low-growing plants around the base, and a covering with a mulch of garden compost mixed with well-rotted manure won't go amiss. These climbing plants grow well along a fence or pergola. Help your clematis to climb - tie the new shoots to a support as they grow.
