Clematis 'Gipsy Queen'

Plant details

Raised in 1877, 'Gipsy Queen' holds the Royal Horticultural Society's prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM) in recognition of its outstanding excellence. Its deep violet flowers are produced from early summer to early autumn. The blooms are larger earlier in the season, however the later smaller blooms are produced in greater profusion. As with all the late-flowering clematis, pruning is easy. Simply cut back the stems to a pair of strong buds 15-20cm (6-8in) above ground level before growth begins in early spring. This pruning technique makes late-flowering clematis useful for training into shrubs, trees and climbing roses as the clematis growth is removed each spring and so never becomes too much of a burden on its supporting plant.
