Large flowered climber blooming in mid and late summer bears abundant single, velvety dark purple flowers 3-4inch across with greenish brown anthers. Height 10 ft spread 3 ft. This is the most popular Clematis vine in the world and one of the easiest to grow. There is an old saying with Clematis; "Tops in the sun and feet in the shade." In other words the vine blooms best in the sun and benefits from a cluster of small plants, planted around the base of the plant.Many people simply plant a ground cover like ivy, myrtle, or pachysandra around the plant to shade the base. The Jackmanii Clematis does best in fertile, humus rich, well-drained soil. Mulch well with composted manure or compost. Feed once a month with a well balanced fertilizer during the growing season.
