Clematis Early Sensation is a beautiful early-flowering climber that is perfect for growing against a wall, trellis, or fence. It produces masses of small, star-shaped white flowers with yellow centers that cover the plant from late winter to early spring. The foliage is a lovely mid-green, making it an attractive plant even when not in bloom.
Best position: This Clematis prefers a position in full sun or partial shade, with its roots kept cool and moist. It is best grown in well-draining soil that is enriched with organic matter. It can be grown against a wall, trellis, or fence, and can also be grown in a large container if provided with a support.
Flowering time: Clematis Early Sensation is an early-flowering variety, blooming from late winter to early spring. It produces masses of small, star-shaped white flowers with yellow centers that cover the plant, making it an excellent choice for bringing color to the garden when few other plants are in bloom.
When to feed and prune: To keep Clematis Early Sensation healthy and blooming well, it is essential to feed it regularly. A balanced, all-purpose fertilizer can be applied in early spring when the plant begins to put on new growth. Deadheading spent flowers will encourage further blooming and prevent the plant from going to seed. As with other Clematis varieties, pruning should be carried out after flowering to ensure that next year’s blooms are not affected. Cut back the previous year’s growth to the lowest pair of healthy buds. If necessary, you can also prune lightly in autumn to keep the plant neat and tidy.
