Clematis Rosa Königskind'
Clematis - 2.5 litres
Clematis 'Rosa Königskind' is compact free-flowering variety with star-shaped soft mauve flowers with gorgeous contrasting deep amethyst-purple stamens which become even darker as the blooms fade, in May-June and again in late summer. Ideal for for training up a wall, arch or trellis with other climbers and for growing up a tripod or obelisk in a border or large container.
Height and spread 1.5-1.8m by 75cm (5-6ft x 30in). Plant in deep, well-drained, humus-rich soil, in sun or partial shade, with its roots in shade. Mulch around the roots in spring with well-rotted manure or compost and feed with a slow release fertilizer. Keep plants in containers well watered and feed fortnightly with a balanced liquid fertiliser during the growing season.
