Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
Clematis cartmanii 'Early Sensation' is a delightful climber that flowers early in the year when there are few other blooms to be found in the garden. The flower buds drip from this compact hardy climber before opening into upturned white flowers which have pale apple-green bases and yellow-green stamens. The evergreen, waxy foliage provides good contrast to its white flowers which appear from February to April. They later form attractive seedheads which can last throughout the year and it's easy to understand the origin of its common name, Old Man's Beard. Clematis 'Early Sensation' is a non-clinging climber that will happily clothe the vertical posts of a pergola or garden obelisk. It also appreciates a sunny, sheltered wall and is ideal on a patio, or even in a conservatory. Height: 2m (6' 6"); Spread: 1m (3' 3"). Pruning group: 1.

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 1 Clematis, remember that they flower on the previous year's growth, so little very little pruning is required. In summer, after flowering, remove any damaged or dead stems entirely. The remaining stems can then be pruned back to a pair of healthy buds.
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.
