Product Information

It’s incredible but true… this special evergreen clematis must be one of the easiest of all to grow. Apart from the removal of the odd broken branch in spring Kimiko needs no pruning at all.

This compact beauty really will produce a tower of bright, star-shapes blooms continuously for 6 months – every year!
Bred specifically for a compact growing habit and a precocious flowering nature, it's vigorous, hardy, healthy and very easy to grow with vigorous re-growth every spring.

Perfect for growing in small spaces, in pots and containers, so are ideal for modern gardens where space may be limited.

Fragrant flowers appear all from early spring to summer over the entire height of the plant giving the appearance of a column of white as these

splendid clematis flower from the leaf axils and the ends of the stems, resulting in blooms right from the ground.
As a bonus, the plants will never get out of hand, reaching a mature height of around 1-1.25m (3-4ft) - perfect for growing on an obelisk in a large pot in a tree or on a fence.

Supplied as an established plant in a 7cm pot, Kimiko is best planted in a sunny location with its roots in some shade. Plants only require a minimum of annual maintenance - cut all stems back to 15cm (6in) in Feb/March– PLUS they are totally winter hardy too!

Top Tips

Clematis like a cool root run so try and plant so that the roots are shaded. If you are planting in a sunny position, place some pieces of slate or flat stones on the soil after planting or use groundcover plants to keep the roots cool.

Care Information

Planting your Clematis:

  • If planting by a wall or fence - the hole should be dug approx. 30cm (12in) away from its base.
  • If planting by a tree - plant about 2 feet (60cm) away from the trunk leaning the cane of the clematis towards the support.
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once the clematis is in place.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Plant with the crown of the plant 5-8cm deep to encourage new shoots to grow from below ground level.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling) then firm in the soil, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well


 

Aftercare advice for your clematis:

  • Feed in spring with a general-purpose feed, avoiding the stems. Mulch immediately afterwards with organic matter such as well-rotted manure, leaf mould or garden compost.
  • Water regularly during periods of dry weather in the first few seasons after planting, especially for container plants.
  • Clematis in pots should be given a liquid feed through the summer and early autumn.

 

Pruning Your Clematis:

  • No regular pruning is required, but if necessary, prune immediately after flowering when the danger of frost has passed.
  • Cut new plants back to just above a strong pair of leaf buds about 30cm (12in) above soil level to encourage multiple stems.
  • Established plants just need overlong branches trimming back and any dead or winter-damaged shoots pruned back to a pair of healthy buds
