Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Frilly pom pom style flowers makes Clematis 'Vyvyan Pennell' one of the more unusual cultivars of clematis. Its lavender blue, double flowers, about 6 to 8 inches in diameter, emerge in late May. Later in the year the clematis will flower again, but this time it will have single, mauve flowers, that look more like a typical clematis bloom. It has rich dark green foliage, and is a good climbing plant to cover untidy or old fencing or a drab wall in a sunny position. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 1m (3') Pruning group: 2.

Flowering Months
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.
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.
