Clematis 'Princess Kate' Collection

Old Man's Beard

Hardy Perennial

An exquisite late flowering clematis which bears stunning 'regal' purple outer and white inner tulip shaped blooms from mid-summer through to autumn. Grow Clematis 'Princess Kate' against walls, fences, trellis, or in large containers on the patio and enjoy a long season of interest. This hardy, resilient Clematis is very easy to maintain as it can be cut back to almost ground level each year. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 1.5m (5'). Pruning group: 3.

These clematis plants are perfectly hardy and can be planted outdoors upon arrival. However, young plants are more vulnerable to extremes of winter weather and may benefit from growing on in an unheated greenhouse, coldframe or similarly sheltered spot until spring.

Pot up clematis plants and grow them on until large enough to plant in their final positions. 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, cut back all of the previous years 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.

  1. Clematis Princess Kate

    By Alison Derrick 04-11-2016

    Arrived safely within time. HUGE box to hold the tower with what seems to be a tiny plant . Not sure it is more than 4-5 cm. Interested to see if it survives - so far none of the plants supplied by T&M have survived more than a few weeks.
