Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
Brighten up your winter garden with this rare and fascinating clematis. Originating from Nepal and parts of China, this stunning climber is quite remarkable, producing new foliage in autumn when most plants are losing their leaves. Large clusters of scented, white, bell-shaped flowers with rich purple filaments appear from November, filling your garden with colour and a sweet fragrance throughout the winter months. Clematis napaulensis is hardy when grown in a sheltered position and needs very little maintenance. Grow it through a deciduous shrub or alongside another climber to cover its bare stems in summer. Height: 3m (118") or more, depending on growing conditions and maturity. Spread: 1.5m (59"). Pruning group: 1. Supplied in a 7cm pot.

Pot up clematis plugs plants and grow them on in warm frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. 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 Clematis napaulensis, remember that it flowers 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.
