An RHS AGM winner, Clematis ‘Sunset' is ideal for patio containers. Its neat and compact habit is combined with plumy-pink flowers, each one measuring up to 10cm (5") across. A dramatic cerise pink bar runs through the centre of each sepal, in contrast to the buttery yellow anthers. These eye-catching flowers appear abundantly from June, and are often followed by a second flush in late summer. Height: 2.5m (8'). Spread: 1m (3'). Pruning group: 2.

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.

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.
