Clematis Jeanne's Pink

Clematis 'Jeanne's Pink'

A compact clematis producing masses of subtle flowers

A wonderful new clematis with full, rounded blooms with overlapping petals of the most delicate shade of pink with soft white highlights, green towards the centre of each bloom. Flowers appear in early summer and again later. Compact in habit it is ideal for small gardens, patios and courtyards and ideal to light up a shady corner.

Where?

The perfect choice for a trellis or a short obelisk, either in the open ground or in a container. Grows in sun or shade. 

How?

Any well-drained soil. Plant 20cm (8ins) deeper than compost level in pot and 45cm (18ins) away from a wall or fence. Wires, trellis or other support required. In the first year after planting prune back hard to approximately one foot above ground level leaving two or three healthy buds. On established plants prune back to approximately five feet in the winter or early spring before the plant starts to grow then again lightly just after flowering to encourage a second flush of flowers.

The name clematis comes from the ancient Greek word for a climbing plant. RHS pruning group 2

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot at least 15cm away from the wall, fence or support. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Remove the pot and position the plant – along with its supporting cane in the hole, leaning onto the support. The top of the rootball needs to be 8cm below the level of the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Arrange and tie the stems onto the support. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year. Mulch with bark chippings or stones to keep the roots cool.
