About Clematis 'Hagley Hybrid':

Clematis 'Hagley Hybrid' is a stunning free-flowering variety that blooms all summer and well into autumn. Its lovely large flowers get to around 20 cm in diameter, and are a delicate pale rose-mauve with beautiful large wine-red anthers. Being nice and compact it's a great in containers making it the perfect choice for even the smallest city garden. Take a look at our full range of Clematis.

Great for your garden:

'Hagley Hybrid' will perform best in a sheltered position where it can enjoy some sunshine and some shade. This partial shade will make the colours intensify - full sun can bleach the flowers. It can look lovely in containers on a patio and when trained along a balcony. It is also a brilliant choice for training through other flowering climbers such as roses on a trellis or frame, and can be left to ramble over shrubs in the border. Why not try training over a decorative obelisk? They give the garden structure through the winter when the plant dies off.


  • Flower colour: Pale rose-mauve
  • Flower shape: Large, open-star, crimped edges to overlapping petals
  • Fragrance: Mild
  • Repeating: Yes
  • Approximate flowering season: July - September
  • Final height and spread: 2.5m x 1m
  • Type: Late large-flowered
  • Habit: Patio Climber
  • Pruning group 3

Look out for:

As with all Clematis caterpillars, earwigs and aphids may be a problem. If possible remove by hand or spray if infestations get really bad. Slime flux can occasionally be a problem. Damaged stems can be infected by the bacteria causing a foul smelling ooze from the affected area. Affected stems should be cut back to a healthy shoot, the infected material destroyed.


Sold as Pink Chiffon in the USA, it was raised by Percy Picton, the famous plantsman who was head gardener at Hagley Hall from 1934 to 1947. It was said to have been descended from seeds collected from plants at Gravetye Manor in West Sussex. Picton was better known for his work with Asters, and the Picton Garden at Colwall in Worcester now run by his son is the legacy of his work. The garden holds around 400 varieties and comprises 2 acres of borders dedicated to the daisies. In late summer it is said to be a truly dazzling sight!

It was given an RHS Award of Garden Merit in 1984, however it is no longer listed as holding one. The usual reasons for this are that newer, similar varieties surpass the older ones, and so the award is passed on to them, and sometimes because it becomes hard to obtain (being widely available is one condition for the award).
