Information

The flowers of clematis Purple Dream are a light rosy-purple, nodding bell-shaped with a delicate grapefruit scent if grown in a sunny location. The flowers are a very good size for a clematis from the atragene group and the fragrance is a very rare occurrence for atragene too so well worth finding a space for in your garden.

Cultivation Advice.

This includes the alpina, chisanensis, koreana, macropetala and their hybrids, i.e. spring flowering cultivars with nodding bell-like flowers and are all very hardy.  
They do not need the 'rich' growing conditions or deep planting that the large flowered cultivars prefer. Because they have very fine root systems they will not thrive in soil which is prone to water-logging and they will actually be happier in poorer soils with very free draining conditions. If required, prune immediately after main flowering. Avoid them becoming too excessively wet during their first autumn and winter in the ground or perhaps plant in the spring.

Wow the scent

I bought all 5 of the new clematis from Dr Marczyński.

They all have a super fragrance of the grapefruit and they performed very well this year up to 2 meters already and flower for the last 8 weeks.

Now I have to do the first prune and make them bushier from the base of the plant.

Nice packaging as well.
