This clematis is loved for its large lavender-blue flowers in early summer and usually again in autumn. Holder of the Royal Horticultural Society's prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM), it was raised back in 1873 but still holds its own among modern varieties. To prune, remove any dead or weak stems in late winter or early spring and cut remaining stems back to the highest pair of strong-growing buds. To encourage blooms to cover the whole plant, train the stems so that they are evenly spaced on their support. As new growth appears in mid-spring, train this to fill any gaps.
