Product Information

A wonderful and totally unique variety of clematis for your garden, 'Green Passion' erupts with a multitude of double green blooms from early May.

From August to September clusters of semi-double and double blooms emerge, each 10-15cm (4-6in) across and each with a sumptuous display of green petals (or more correctly, sepals). There's a second explosion of blooms in August and Spetember, and these are slightly different with fewer sepals and more white, but still an equally impressive show.

A truly unique display, the flowers will attract pollinators into your garden, creating a wildlife haven.Compact growing to 6-8ft or so, it's easily grown in a pot and being easy to grow and maintain means that anyone can grow it, with or without a garden! We recommend planting Green Passion near a support to help it scramble upwards.

Supplied as an established plant in a 7cm pot, ready to pot on or plant out.

Top Tips

  • Plant with the crown of the plant 5-8cm deep to encourage new shoots to grow from below ground level.
  • 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) and firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball then 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:

  • Pruning couldn’t be easier: simply cut it back hard in spring to a pair of strong buds 15-20cm (6-8in) above ground level before regrowth begins.
