The President Clematis

The President produces huge 18cm diameter blooms of intense violet-blue with slightly paler bars, and creamy yellow and wine-red stamens. These are followed by lovely spiky seedheads. They flower prolifically throughout the summer and again in autumn providing a valuable shock of colour in the garden over the whole season. Have a look through our full range of Clematis here.

Great for your garden:

'The President' is a fantastic choice for growing up over a frame such as a pergola or an archway or covering a wall or trellis. It looks particularly good when grown through climbing roses. It can also be used in the border where it can be grown over a structure such as an obelisk or grown through a host shrub. Being fairly compact it is also possible to grow this clematis in large containers on a patio or even train it along a balcony.

It comes with the RHS Award of Garden Merit due to its excellent performance in the garden.

Look out for:

As with all Clematis, 'The President' may be affected by caterpillars, earwigs and aphids. Hand pick where possible, or spray if infestations get too heavy.

Disinfect all tools after handling diseased material!

Trivia:

Bred by Charles Noble in the late 1870's, 'The President' is still extremely popular. Charles Noble was a nurseryman who, in the mid 1800's, opened the Sunningdale Nursery near Bagshott in Surrey. At its peak, the nursery is said to have lined either side of a road busy with horse-drawn carts for nearly a mile.

Noble himself had a reputation for having an explosive temper, and it is said that customers who dared venture into the establishment unannounced often bore the brunt of it.
