This evergreen clematis has been growing in our garden for many years, where it has consistently impressed us with its reliability and flower power. A rare find and absolutely garden worthy. It is a mass of flowers from late winter to spring. The white flowers are up to 7cm across and have reddish stamens. Clematis ‘Purity’ is a selected form of Clematis paniculata.
Clematis ‘Purity’ is pruning group 1, flowering on last year’s growth. So they are super easy to care for, you just have to trim to tidy ... Or not, they really aren’t too fussy.
As a rule of thumb, Clematis tend grow well where Roses grow well. They are also excellent in combination. You can use similar colours for a lovely blend or create some drama with complimentary shades. In fact, Clematis intermingle well with many plants – trees and shrubs especially as they can be used for climbing in a beautiful symbiosis. They are so versatile, you can even grow them in pots.
The old adage is to plant your clematis so their 'head' is in the sun and their 'feet' are in the shade. In other words they like their root zone to be cool and protected, and the stem to grow up into a sunny position. You can protect the root zone with mulch and/or by using other plants to shield the roots from the sun.
The old saying is to plant your Clematis so their ‘head’ is in the sun and their ‘feet’ are in the shade. In other words, they like their root zone to be cool and protected while their tendrils enjoy the sunshine. In exposed positions this can be achieved with mulch and or by using other plants to shield the roots from the sun. The plant should be allowed to grow up into a sunny position.
Clematis can be trained to grow on a trellis, fence, through trees and shrubs, along pergolas or any where you like! They will need something a centimetre or less to twine in order to climb. They are so versatile, you can even use them as a ground cover.
To perform at their best, Clematis should be fertilised well. Use a Rose Fertiliser every three months or when they are actively growing.
Grow Clematis in humus rich, moist, well drained soil. They need good drainage or the roots will rot. Plant Clematis so they will receive around six hours sun a day and shield from the hot afternoon rays. You can even choose to grow your Clematis in pots.
