Information
Clematis Sugar Sweet Blue - 'Scented Clem'. This is a truly amazing new introduction from Ton Hannink, a highly regarded plantsman from The Netherlands. Ton has been breeding many different types of plants at his home and greenhouses using rare species collected from the wild including parts of Asia. He has been able to combine attributes already popular with gardeners with new and unique attributes we once could only dream of. Earlier flowering than many of this type, with a fragrance and not only that, a wilt resistant nature as well!
Clematis Sugar Sweet Blue flowers April and May and can grow rapidly to about 8 feet high, even after winter pruning as low as 12 inches from the ground.

Previously named clematis 'Blue Musk' in error.

Cultivation Advice.

Large flowered clematis prefer a good quality soil with high nutrient levels and a soil which is moist but free-draining. Improve planting holes with at least 2 forkfuls of well rotted manure or garden compost and if you don't have these use a 'Soil Improver' compost. The Improvement material added should be placed under the root of the plant not around it. This encourages the roots to grow downwards and remain deep and cool during summer. If your clematis flowers in May-June(late spring), cut the dead flower heads when they have finished to encourage a second set of flowers to be produced in the late summer and autumn. Be prepared to wait for a couple of years before they will be at their best - Our saying is - 1st year = Roots, 2nd year = Shoots, 3rd year = Flowers!
