Clematis Queen Mother is a stunning climbing plant that produces masses of large, deep purple flowers with bright red stamens from late spring to early autumn. This cultivar is a vigorous grower, reaching a height of 2-3 meters, making it perfect for training up trellises, walls, or fences.
For optimal growth and flowering, plant Clematis Queen Mother in a sunny or partially shaded position in moist, well-drained soil. It prefers its roots to be kept cool, so plant some low-growing shrubs or perennials around its base to shade them. It is recommended to enrich the soil with organic matter such as compost or well-rotted manure before planting.
Clematis Queen Mother should be fed in early spring with a balanced fertilizer to encourage strong growth and promote flowering. Regular pruning is also necessary to keep it healthy and promote new growth. In late winter or early spring, cut back all stems to just above a pair of healthy buds, around 20-30cm above ground level. Dead or damaged stems should be removed throughout the year as needed.
