Features

notes

With scented, white, double flowers smothering the foliage in spring, Clematis Double Delight can be grown in any aspect, even up a north facing wall. The strong, healthy foliage is adept at covering unsightly sheds or walls, or the clematis can be left to scramble through a tree for a stunning display in spring. It often flowers on new vine growth later in the season. 

Insights

The spring flowering clematis have a very fine root system so do not fare well in waterlogged ground, in fact, they thrive in poor soil conditions, if free draining. Do not over fertilise as this will encourage foliage growth, at the expense of flowers.

Details

Flowers: April – May 

Planting
  • Moist, well-drained soil

  • Full sun or partial sunlight
Care
  • As Clematis like cool roots, try to position so that the roots will be shaded from the sun by another plant. Bear in mind the space they will need to climb and provide a suitable structure - trellis, wall, fence or other plant - to climb through
  • Can be a skin irritant and harmful to pets if ingested
  • Group 1 pruning
Scent

Scent ranges from vanilla to hot chocolate!
