Description

Instantly recognisable as a clematis tangutica variety, but without the sprawling stems of its larger cousins! Clematis 'Little Lemons' is a super-dwarf plant with a neat, bushy habit. The short, 45cm (18") long stems are cloaked in delicately cut, bright green foliage. A host of nodding, lemon-yellow blooms decorate this dwarf plant from May to September. Terminal buds are replaced by fluffy seed heads as the flowers fade, providing a lovely textural display which extends the season of interest by several weeks.

Like other tangutica varieties, Clematis 'Little Lemons' is extremely hardy and easy to prune - simply cut the stems back to just above ground level at the end of the season. This well behaved, dwarf Clematis makes a superb patio plant for pots, baskets and window boxes; or grow it at the front of mixed borders for an unusual focal point. Height and spread: 45cm (18"). Pruning Group: 3.

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.

How to Grow
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 it 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.
More Info
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.
