Clematis Jackmanii Hybrid 'Grunwald'
A multitude of open faced, magenta purple flowers with a decadent velour sheen. The depth of colour is rare in Clematis and an asset in the garden. Each is 10-12cm across with 6 pointed sepals and a highlighted violet pink bar. They inundate the vine from around December to February. The new leaves have a purple border. Clematis ‘Grunwald’ was bred by Szczepan Marczynski.
Jackmanii Clematis hybrids are gorgeous, large flowering Clematis. The strong, vining tendrils are covered in flowers, like brilliant jewels strung up in your garden, for a month or more. Perfect to soften harsh edges - posts, pergolas fences and walls or even trees.
Jackmanii Clematis hybrids make a statement of beauty without being overpowering with their spring to autumn flower show. They are easy grow and ideal for beginners, requiring little in the way of care and offering rich rewards.
Clematis generally 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 contrasting shades. In fact, Clematis intermingle well with a whole host of plants, shrubs and trees.
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 them.
Clematis can be trained to grow on a trellis, fence, through trees and shrubs, along pergolas or any where you like! They are so versatile, you can even use them as a ground cover. They need something narrow enough to twine around, such as wire.
Grow Clematis in humus rich, moist, well drained soil. They need good drainage or the roots will rot. Plant so they will receive around six hours sun a day and shield from the hot afternoon rays. You can also grow Clematis in pots.
To perform at their best they should be fertilised well, simply use a Rose Fertiliser every three months or so.
