Product Description

These dramatic flowers really stand out against the dense foliage with their beautiful velvet ruby-wine coloured flowers, 'Niobe' is a striking Clematis variety that has an eye-catching lime-white stamen. A great climbing plant, it is a fantastic choice for adding a splash of colour to trail up trellises and walls where it will reach a height of up to 2-2.5m. They are also ideal for containers that can be pruned back to a manageable height and will attract pollinators such as butterflies into the garden. Niobe holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit for its reliable performance, stunning colour and good resistance to pests and diseases. Clematis like to be planted where they can get plenty of sunlight but prefer their roots to be kept cool and shaded. These bold and attention-grabbing flowers bloom from July through to September. 9cm pot plants supplied.

Growing at a glance…

Clematis are vigorous climbing plants that reach various heights and spreads. Its best to prune back to keep control over the growth annually and initially they should be tied in to help direct the new growth. Apply a liquid fertiliser each yearduring the growing season, and water regularly during hot periods.Clematis can be planted October-May in areas with good drainage and plenty of sun is preferable. Soak in a bucket of water prior to planting and plant deep enough to allow plenty of room for root development. The roots of clematis like to be keptcool so it is a good idea to plant amongst low growing shrubs or bedding plants. If planting in containers, ensure the pot is large enough to allow the roots to expand/develop, as limitation of roots will certainly impede future success.
