Product Information

If you are wanting to create an early season display with eye-catching large blooms, this clematis is most definitely the one for you.

The 'H.F.Young' is a gorgeous large flowering clematis that produces stunning lavender-blue star-shaped flowers in the late spring and the once again in the early autumn. Each flower is detailed with delicate cream antlers and they are surrounded but the plants glossy green foliage. The perfect choice for summer long interest.

A vigorous climber, this clematis has a relatively compact habit that make it suitable for growing in container if space is limited, where its free-flowering nature can be put to best effect. Clematis plants make wonderful additions to any garden and can be used very effectively to screen and hide objects and to enhance other plants such as other climbers and shrubs, especially roses.

Winter hardy and free flowering, they can pretty much be left to their own devices with just a light trim in late winter/early spring trim and a prune back in the summer after flowering.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant.

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 60cm (2ft) 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).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, 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:

  • Pruning is a case of a simple tidy up - in late winter/early spring simply reduce all stems down to 15cm (6in) of soil level.
