Prior to planting make sure that the Clematis 'Warszawska Nike' root ball is soaked well by placing in a bucket full of lukewarm water. Prepare a suitable hole in moist, well-drained soil. Place the root ball of the clematis at the right depth in the hole - the top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil, press firmly down and water immediately after planting. Clematis grows well when you mix nutritious compost into the garden soil. This vine will be happy anywhere, in complete sunshine or planted in semi shade!
Clematis 'Warszawska Nike' complements other plants
Large-flowered clematis look wonderful next to rambling roses - for instance plant next to the 'Elfe' for a really chic floral mix. Try Clematis 'Warszawska Nike' with other clematis too, for instance 'Apple Blossom' for a jolly contrast. This compact clematis will also thrive in a large planter supported by a climbing frame.
The clematis really dislikes dry soil, so water more often during dry periods. They like to keep their ‘feet' cool whilst the foliage is in the sun – this can be achieved by planting low-growing plants around the base or covering with a mulch of garden compost. This climbing plant grows well along a fence or pergola. Help it to climb and fill in gaps by tying the new shoots to a support as they grow.
