Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
If you are looking for a deep mauve/purple-flowering Clematis with a subtle dark stripe through the flower petals and creamy white anthers, consider Clematis 'Mikelite'! It flowers from July through to September and looks impressive when growing against dark greens or even yellows. This hardy perennial climber is a modern viticella hybrid strain and it is highly suitable for growing in pots and containers in addition to training up a trellis, a pergola or even scrambling through other garden plants in the borders. How about teaming it with a climbing pink rose or a yellow-flowering Clematis? 'Mikelite' is very easy to grow and maintain. Height: 2.5m (8' 2"). Spread: 1m (3' 3"). Pruning group: 3.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Flowering Months
Feed and water frequently throughout the growing season. When pruning group 3 Clematis remember that they flower on the current year's growth. In spring, simply cut back all of the previous year's growth to a pair of strong buds at the base of the plant. Afterwards, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant.
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.
