Clematis 'Olympia'

Clematis "Olympia", Purple, with Climbing Rack - Hardy plant

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.

Seasonal effects

The appearance of ramblers changes between seasons. From a bare plant lying dormant in winter to fresh greenery in spring, in full bloom during summer to leaves changing colour and dropping in autumn. This is a natural process courtesy of mother nature. Our plants will be delivered accordingly.

Planting+

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 looks great with other plants

The large-flowered clematis looks beautiful grown beside roses as they like the same growing conditions. Plant clematis next to rambling rose 'Elfe' for a chic combination. This compact clematis will also thrive in a large planter. Support the stems and tendrils with some type of climbing frame.
 

Care+

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.

Pruning clematis

Clematis are  divided into 3 main groups for pruning purposes. 
Group 1 clematis is early and small flowering. The flowers develop on last year's wood. Pruning is not necessary but you should cut back all dead and damaged twigs at the start of March. Cut away over blown blooms in the summer. Any pruning done to maintain the shape should be done immediately after flowering although it's not strictly necessary at all.
Group 2 clematis is both early and late flowering. Pruning is not necessary but do cut back all dead and damaged twigs. Overblown flowers can be cut off in the autumn.
Group 3 clematis is late flowering and will flower on this year's wood. Pruning is normally required if you want it to flower abundantly. In late February or early March is a good time to prune all branches hard back to 2 strong buds. Cut off dead flowers in the autumn. To rejuvenate the whole shrub, prune all last year's twigs back in early spring - right down to the ground. This however will have you skipping a flowering season.
