Clematis ‘The President’ is a beautiful and popular climber that produces large, deep purple-blue flowers that are truly stunning. It’s a vigorous plant that can reach up to 3 meters in height and spread up to 1.5 meters, making it perfect for covering walls, fences, and trellises.
This variety of Clematis blooms in mid-summer to early autumn, with the flowering time typically starting in June and continuing through August. The large, striking blooms can be up to 15cm in diameter, and they contrast beautifully against the deep green foliage. The flowers are followed by attractive silvery seed heads, which persist well into winter.
When it comes to positioning this plant, it prefers a sunny or partially shaded spot that is sheltered from strong winds. It’s also important to ensure that the roots remain cool and moist, so adding a layer of mulch around the base of the plant can help with this.
The President Clematis is a great choice for adding vertical interest to a garden, and it’s perfect for creating a focal point in a border. It can also be grown in a container, provided it is well-watered and fed during the growing season. With its striking blooms and vigorous growth, this is a plant that is sure to impress.
