Large Flowered, Late Flowering Cultivars

The flowers produced by the late flowering Clematis are produced on the current seasonís stems. They can be grown through a great range of objects and hosts, including shrubs and roses to brighten them up. They can also be allowed to clamber about at ground level. These Clematis do not lend themselves to be grown easily in containers because of their habit of flowering at the end of the growing tips (up to two metres in length), but with careful training this can be done.

These types tolerate almost any position, with the exception of Ernest Markham (not North facing). Hagley Hybrid (not south facing)

Pruning
First Year, February/March, cut back to approximately 30cm above ground Second year, February/March, and following years, remove all growth to just above previous seasons growth. 70-80 cm above ground
