Delivery season: Clematis are delivered in pots year round, when in stock. It is usually best not to plant out pot grown plants in winter, but to keep them until Spring, because they will establish faster in warm soil and give you better first year growth.
Choosing a size: Small plants are cheaper and more forgiving of less than ideal aftercare, so they are best for a big planting project. If instant impact is your priority, or if you are only buying a few plants for use in a place where it is convenient to water them well in their first year, then you may as well use bigger ones. All our climbing plants come in standard pot sizes.

Growing Diana's Delight Clematis

It will be happiest in alkaline or neutral soil. Fully hardy, it is best to plant it out of full sun in the Southern half of the island, because too much sun, especially at midday, tends to fade the colour.

Did You Know?

Part of the Boulevard collection by Raymond Evison and Poulsen Nursery, which are either low climbers, or dwarf varieties that grow like a shrub. All of them are great for pots and patios. Introduced 2009. It was originally going to be called Genevieve.

Diana, or Artemis (they were once different goddesses, but Diana absorbed the Artemis brand when the Roman Empire conquered Greece, buying the rights to her trademarked content), delights in terracotta gifts fashioned into the shape of the pregnant women and newborns that she protects, so if you are planting this variety in a pot, make sure it's terracotta and refer to it as a 'womb' to keep it happy. 

Planting Instructions

In the first spring after planting, cut all stems back to 30cm. Pruning is not necessary in subsequent years, but cutting back dead and damaged stems will keep the plant tidy and encourage vigorous new growth.
