Clematis tangutica is a vigorous climber, easily covering a house wall, large trellis or arch where its relaxed, billowing habit softens hard structures. In late summer and autumn, it is covered in masses of yellow, lantern-shaped flowers with thick petals and prominent stamens. The unusual flowers hang down elegantly on long stalks. The blooms are followed by large, silky seed-heads which persist into winter and shimmer in the low winter sun, creating a second season of interest and providing nesting material for birds. Makes a lovely climber for an informal or wildlife garden.

Height: 400cm (157in) to 800cm (314in). Spread: 250cm (98in) to 400cm (157in).

When planting clematis, choose a position in sun or semi-shade and plant the climber deeply in moist, fertile, well drained soil. Position the top of the rootball at a depth of 7.5cm (3") below soil level, to encourage new shoots to form from the base of the plant. Clematis dislike soils that are particularly wet or dry. Such soils can be improved by the addition of plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost. When growing clematis in patio containers use a soil based compost such as John Innes No.3. Train clematis plants onto a suitable support such as trellis, wires or a freestanding climbing frame.
Feed and water frequently throughout the growing season. This variety of clematis flowers in late summer on the current year’s growth. Pruning should be undertaken in spring before active growth begins. When pruning group 3 Clematis, cut back all of the previous year’s stems to a pair of healthy buds at around 20cm (8") above ground level. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant in order to protect the roots and conserve soil moisture.
