Description
Originating from Nepal and parts of China, this rare and unusual clematis has a fascinating growth habit. Clematis napaulensis is cloaked in lush green foliage from autumn to early summer, before shedding its leaves in summer when most plants are in full growth. Its bell-shaped, winter blooms release a delicate perfume, that hangs on the cool December air, and form interesting seed heads as spring approaches. This extraordinary, low maintenance Clematis needs little pruning, making it ideal for brightening the dull winter months. Grow it in a sheltered position through another deciduous climber to hide its bare stems in summer. Height: 3m (9') or more, depending on growing conditions and maturity. Spread: 1.5m (5'). Pruning group: 1. Supplied in 7cm pots.

How to Grow
Pot up clematis plants and grow them on until large enough to plant in their final positions. When planting Clematis napaulensis, choose a sheltered 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 large pergola.
More Info
Feed and water frequently throughout the growing season. This variety of clematis flowers in early spring on the previous year's growth. Pruning should be undertaken in summer. When pruning Clematis napaulensis, remove any damaged or dead stems entirely before cutting back the remaining stems to a pair of healthy buds to maintain the plant within its allotted space. 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.
