Clematis Plants

Clematis is one of the best loved climbing plants, and for good reason! There are so many varieties - colour, flower size, pruning group and flowering period - that you may need help choosing. Read on for tips on how to choose, where to grow and how to care for your Clematis plants.

Choose your Clematis Plants

Large flowered Clematis varieties include Niobe (Crimson) and The President (Indigo) whereas Alpina Willy (Blush Pink) or Cyanea (Blue) will produce clusters of smaller flowers. Montana Mayleen (Lilac) and Elizabeth (Pink) are scented. You can also choose when you want your clematis to flower, from Winter (Cirrhosa varieties) through early Spring (Alpinas) to Autumn (Viticellas).

Where to grow Clematis Plants

All Clematis plants will thrive when trained up a fence, wall, trellis or obelisk. Most prefer full sun, but some, such as Nelly Moser, can be grown in shade. The fast-growing Montana varieties including Alba and Marjorie will cover a wall or shed in no time. Some Clematis plants can even be grown in pots - choose compact Giselle or Bernadine.

Clematis Plant Care Tips

Plant Clematis in fertile, moisture-retaining soil and dig in plenty of compost or manure. Feed your plants weekly with a high potash fertiliser in Summer and water well. Clematis have three different pruning groups so it is important to check which one applies to yours. For more information about pruning groups, Clematis care and varieties, see our Full Care Guide.
