Clematis Prince Charles is a stunning variety of clematis that produces large, elegant blooms in shades of mauve-pink with a prominent central bar of darker pink. The flowers are 4-6 inches in diameter and have a striking contrast against the dark green foliage.
Best Position: Clematis Prince Charles thrives in a spot with full sun exposure, but also tolerates partial shade. It requires a well-draining soil that is moist and fertile. Plant in a location where the base of the plant is shaded, but the foliage is exposed to sunlight.
Flowering Time: The blooming period of Clematis Prince Charles is from early summer to early autumn, with the first flush of flowers appearing in May-June and a second flush in late summer.
When to Feed: To promote healthy growth and abundant flowering, feed Clematis Prince Charles with a balanced fertilizer in early spring before new growth appears and again in early summer after the first flush of blooms.
When to Prune: Clematis Prince Charles belongs to the Group 2 clematis, which means that it needs light pruning in late winter or early spring. Prune out any dead or damaged stems and cut back the remaining stems to a pair of healthy buds. This will encourage vigorous growth and promote a bushier plant with more blooms. After the second flush of blooms in late summer, deadhead the spent flowers to encourage the production of new buds.
