Clematis 'Samaritan Jo' is a stunning and rewarding plant for any garden location or for growing in a container for the deck garden, patio or outdoor dining area.
This pretty, silver-pink star-shaped flowers of this Clematis have very pointed tips, and margins outlined with a delicate tracery of light purple-pink, further accentuated with a beautiful crown of purple stamens topped with the clearest golden yellow - a real sight to behold!
What Is Supplied
Item 550364 supplied as:
Supplied as 3 x established plants in 10.5cm pots, ready for planting
- Plant with the crown of the plant 5-8cm deep to encourage new shoots to grow from below ground level.
- Clematis like a cool ‘root run’ so try and plant so that the roots are shaded. If you are planting in a sunny position, place some pieces of slate or flat stones on the soil after planting or use groundcover plants to keep the roots cool.
- Feed in spring with a general-purpose feed, avoiding the stems. Mulch immediately afterwards with organic matter such as well-rotted manure, leafmould or garden compost.
- Water regularly during periods of dry weather in the first few seasons after planting, especially for container plants.
- Clematis in pots should be given a liquid feed through the summer and early autumn.
- Flowers appear on new growth, so cut back all the previous year's stems to a pair of strong buds, 15-20cm above soil level, before growth begins in early spring.
