About 'Niobe' Clematis:

Niobe is an exquisitely coloured Clematis; its large showy blooms are a sumptuous and velvety deep claret red. Its prominent central stamens are a limey gold, and each flower measures to around 15cm in diameter creating quite an impact.

You are treated to this display over a tremendously long period, with two flowerings spanning from May through to September.

Great for your garden:

Niobe looks wonderful trained over a trellis, frame, or against a wall. They look especially good when coupled with other climbers in complimentary colours, particularly climbing roses.

The flowers produce better colour in partial shade, so they can be very effective trained up through a small tree. They can also look lovely rambling over a host shrub in the border.

If you are somewhat lacking in space or soil, then this Clematis is compact enough that it can be grown in a large container, meaning you could have it on a patio climbing a decorative obelisk or even train it along a balcony.

It is such a strong performer that it has been awarded the highly regarded RHS award of Garden Merit.

Look out for:

As with all Clematis caterpillars, earwigs and aphids can cause problems. Pick off by hand where possible, spray if infestations get really bad.

May have some susceptibility to Clematis wilt. Avoid through annual mulching for good deep root cultivation. Cut out any infected material and destroy, disinfect tools.

Slime flux can occasionally be a problem. Damaged stems can be infected causing a foul smelling ooze from the affected area. Cut back to a healthy shoot, the infected material should be destroyed.

Trivia:

Niobe was bred by Wladysław Noll in Poland in the 1970's.

The story of Niobe in Greek Mythology is a (typically) tragic one. After boasting proudly of her 14 children to Leto, who had only been blessed with two, they were all killed with arrows by Leto's children, the twins Apollo and Artemis.

Devastated, Niobe fled back to Mount Sipylus where she was turned to stone, her tears pouring down her petrified face. To this day the natural rock formation at Mount Sipylus bears the resemblance of a woman's face, and the rainwater seeps through the porous limestone resembling tears running down her face.
