The Summer Clematis Collection (A) - NEW for this year, offering 3 AWARD WINNING Large Flowering Clematis Suited to Growing in ABSOLUTELY ANY SPOT in your Garden!
This Collection of Summer Flowering Clematis Climbing Plants consists of:- 1 X Clematis 'The President', 1 X Clematis 'Comtesse de Bouchaud' and 1 X Clematis 'Fireworks'. The added bonus of this Collection is not only that you have beautiful LARGE FLOWERING clematis throughout the summer you can also plant them in ABSOLUTELY ANY SPOT in your garden, even SHADE!
The first in our NEW SUMMER COLLECTION is, Clematis 'The President', a hugely popular Clematis with large, handsome diamond shaped purple-blue flowers set around a centre of soft lavender stamens. Flowering for you in May-June and again in July-September. The earlier flowers of Clematis 'The President' can sometimes be semi-double and the leaves are dark green and glossy. Clematis 'The President' can be left to grow over natural supports but I find it's at its best and particularly useful when used in small gardens or planted in containers on terraces, balconies and patios. Grows to 2-2.5 meters in any aspect and needs a light pruning early spring. Clematis 'The President' is a very reliable HARDY variety giving consistently good results year after year - it simply never disappoints and perhaps the reason The Royal Horticultural Society have awarded this Clematis with the Award of Garden Merit.
The second in our NEW SUMMER COLLECTION also is a holder of the (AGM) Award of Garden Merit Clematis 'Comtesse de Bouchaud'. Summer colour in a rosy velvet shell-pink, giving you very large blooms from mid-summer right through to early autumn. Perhaps the reason this climber is such a favourite and so prized is because of the eye catching beautiful flowers, which are some 4 - 6" in size, most as large as your hand and incredibly easy to grow. 'Queen of the Pinks' and simply exquisite grown on its own or the perfect companion when several colours are mixed.
The third (AGM) Award Winning Clematis in our NEW SUMMER COLLECTION is 'Fireworks'. What a treat! A dramatic, sumptuous Clematis with giant purple bi-coloured flowers with a cream and red centre. Clematis 'Fireworks' has some of the largest flowers in the Clematis world! Clematis 'Fireworks' also has two separate flushes of flowers in the season, firstly in May to June and then again in September. This large flowering Clematis can be planted in full sun to full shade and looks lovely anywhere. The petals are frequently wavy, adding to their WOW factor! Clematis 'Fireworks' truly is an outstanding climber which has received the prestigious Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit for having a sheer explosion of colour - a simply must have climber to adorn your garden or favourite patio pot!
