Clematis 'New Love'

Old Man's Beard, Heracleifolia Group

Hardy Perennial

 Customer Rating
This fabulous herbaceous Clematis has a self supporting, bush forming habit that is perfect for bulking up perennial borders with vigorous clumps of dense foliage. The star-shaped, indigo blooms of Clematis 'New Love' have slender, reflexed petals and a lovely sweet fragrance. This spectacular variety is best grown among tall perennials such as Lupins, Foxgloves, and Delphiniums and makes a superb gap filler for cottage garden planting schemes. Height: 90cm (35"). Spread: 50cm (20"). 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.
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 Clematis 'New Love', 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.
