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.

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 his explosive temper, and it is said that customers who dared venture into the establishment unannounced often bore the brunt of it.
