Clematis 'Polish Spirit'

Plant details

Clematis 'Polish Spirit' bears rich purple-blue flowers from mid-summer to early autumn. Growth is very vigorous and the plant retains its foliage well throughout the season. It's perfect for growing up a trellis or fence, and may also be trained to scramble through trees and shrubs. A viticella clematis, it shows good resistance to clematis wilt.

Grow Clematis 'Polish Spirit' in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. As with all late-flowering clematis, pruning is easy: simply cut back stems to a pair of strong buds 30cm above ground level before growth begins in early spring.
