Clematis 'Arabella'

Photo of Clematis 'Arabella'

£10.99

A beautiful semi-herbaceous compact perennial with scrambling stems bearing deep blue-mauve flowers 7.5-9cm across, with six narrow sepals becoming pinky-mauve. It is a non-clinging variety so is perfect for scrambling through shrubs in the border. It's a small clematis and is ideal for growing in pots on the patio where it can grow up small supports, such as an obelisk. Flowers from late spring to early autumn.

Care instructions

Grow in well-drained soil in full sun. In early spring cut back the previous year's stems to a pair of strong buds about 15-20cm (6-8in) above ground-level and apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the plant, avoiding the immediate crown.
