Raised in 1877, Clematis 'Gipsy Queen' holds its own against modern varieties and has the Royal Horticultural Society's prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM). Its deep violet flowers are borne from early summer to autumn. Its blooms are larger earlier in the season, however the later smaller blooms are produced in greater profusion. It's ideal for growing up a trellis or obelisk, and may even be trained to scramble through a shrub or tree.
For best results grow Clematis 'Gipsy Queen' in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Mulch annually with well-rotted manure or compost. As with all the late-flowering clematis, pruning is easy: simply cut back the stems to a pair of strong buds 130cm above ground level before growth resumes in spring.
