About 'Piilu' Clematis:

'Piilu' Clematis is a fantastic early large flowering variety providing stunning blowsy blooms from May right through to as late as October.

The flowers themselves begin the season as big showy doubles, with frills of petals ranging from deep rose to palest pink as they reach the golden anthers at the center. As the season goes on the flowers tend to become single.

Great for your garden:

Perfect for growing against a wall, 'Piilu' can also work really nicely growing through other climbing plants such as ivy or roses on a trellis or frame. It also looks really effective when left to ramble over shrubs and through trees.

Due to its size this is a great clematis for smaller gardens and can be successfully grown in containers on patios and balconies.

  • Look out for:

    As with all clematis caterpillars, earwigs and aphids may be a problem. Remove by hand where possible, and spray if infestations get really bad.

    May have some susceptibility to clematis wilt. Avoid through mulching and good deep root cultivation. Cut out infected stems and destroy immediately, disinfect tools.


    Trivia:

    This fantastic Clematis was raised by Uno Kivistic on the family farm in Estonia in the mid 1980's. From around 1979 - 1976 along with his wife Aili, he raised 150 cultivars of Clematis.

    He was specifically interested in those plants that were capable of withstanding the harsh freezing temperatures of the Estonian winters and their relatively short summers. With that in mind, it's no wonder 'Piilu' is such a strong performer in our comparatively balmy climate!
