Open, mauve blue flowers in abundance. This is one of the best ‘blue’ Clematis available. Each flower stretches to around 10-12cm. It has excellent vigour and is sure to impress.
Clematis ‘Perle d’Azur’ holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit so you know it has been put through its paces and is garden worthy.
Clematis ‘Perle d 'Azur’ is a deciduous, climbing Clematis in pruning group 2, and flowers on new and old growth. You can give it a light prune of the spent flowers in summer after, the initial flowering to stimulate new shoots and give you a bigger second flush in autumn. Then prune winter/early spring, cutting back the dead/spindly stems to healthy buds, taking back to around 30cm from the base to keep it tidy. It is a good idea to add some fertiliser after pruning.
Clematis grows 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 contrasting shades. As a point 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.
Grow Clematis in humus rich, moist, well drained soil. They need good drainage or the roots can rot. Plant so they will receive around six hour’s sun a day and shield from the hot afternoon rays. To perform at their best they should be fertilised well. Use a Rose Fertiliser every three months or so.
