Clematis climbs against walls, sheds, and pergolas.

Clematis are very versatile climbing plants, they can be seen growing almost everywhere over hedges and walls or up a trellis or tree and can produce hundreds of flowers over a long period of time.

Widely regarded as the queen of climbers Clematis are versatile plants in a great variation of forms and colours. Most produce single blooms however some are double flowering and a few Peony flowering varieties. 

Most Clematis plants are deciduous with just a few evergreen varieties.

Clematis blooms come in many shapes and sizes most are single, there are some double and multi flowering varieties. Clematis flowers do not have petals instead their sepals look like petals they are known as tepals.

There is a huge variation in the height of Clematis some are tiny while others in the montana can grow as high as 40ft. Choose Clematis for plants for all seasons; start with a Montana type like Clematis montana Rubens for early spring, for late spring early summer you can choose a Clematis Multi Blue or the well known Nelly Moser, for high summer to early autumn you can use a Jackmanni, a Ville de Lyon or for example or a Hagley Hybrid. There are plenty of varieties to select for each season.

TIP: The “rule of green thumbs when planting Clematis is, plant Clematis with thick fleshy roots deep, (approx. 10 cm. soil on top of the root ball ). Clematis with thinner web roots should be planted even with the surface, no extra soil on top of the root ball. ‘Their feet in the shade and their heads in the sun’.

How to prune Clematis

The varieties that bloom in May - July, and sometimes still provide an afterglow in August - September, can best be pruned from mid-March. They bloom on the wood that was formed the previous year. The pruning of these cultivars is limited to the removal of dead wood, branches that are three years or older or twigs that really get in the way. After pruning the clematis you can suddenly also bind the young shoots.

The varieties that bloom from July to the end of September are also pruned from mid-March but then slightly different. When cutting these clematis, you can cut all stems up to 1 meter above the ground. The flowers you see from July onwards grow on the tendrils that only grew up after the pruning. The growth of the new tendrils is much more intense than with the former and that does ensure that you have to do it more regularly.
