If you want a climber with huge flowers measuring up to 20cm, choose Clematis 'Blue Ravine'! It flowers twice per year, first in late spring/early summer, then again in late summer when the lavender blue flowers with their contrasting purple/red anthers are slightly smaller. This delightful, compact climber shows off its blue flowers to best advantage when planted in a partially shaded position. The blooms tend to fade in bright sunlight. It looks good in containers; on trellises; on pergolas and even scrambling through garden shrubs. Height: 2.5m (8'). Spread: 1m (3') Pruning group: 2.

Grow Clematis in sheltered sunny borders in any moist, well drained soil. Clematis plants particularly dislike dry soils so add plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to improve moisture retention in summer. Plant clematis with the top of the rootball positioned 7.5cm (3”) below soil level, to encourage new shoots to form from the base of the plant. Be sure to provide the twining stems with an appropriate support, such as trellis or wires attached to fences and pergolas. Alternatively grow clematis up freestanding plant frames in patio containers. When planting in containers, use a soil based compost such as John Innes No.3.
Feed and water frequently throughout the growing season. In autumn or spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant. When pruning group 2 Clematis, remember that they flower on new stems which develop from the previous year's growth. In spring, remove any damaged or dead stems entirely. The remaining stems can then be pruned back to a pair of healthy buds.
