Key information

Clematis 'Emilia Plater'

Plant details

Named after the 19th century Polish–Lithuanian noblewoman and revolutionary, Clematis 'Emilia Plater' is a robust viticella-type clematis, bearing light mauve-blue flowers with a darker central bar on each tepal. It has good resistance to clematis wilt. 

A vigorous climber, it is ideally suited to growing up a sturdy obelisk in a large herbaceous border, or being allowed to scramble through a shrub or tree. It can also be grown to quickly cover a wall or face. It makes a great companion for yellow-flowered plants.

Being a summer-flowering clematis, 'Emilia Plater' is in Pruning Group 3. The flowers are formed on the terminal 60cm of the current year's growth, so need to be cut down in late-winter/early spring to ensure flowering remains at eye level. Simply cut stems back to the lowest pair of buds in February or March.
