Product Description

One of the ground-breaking Boulevard® clematis, ‘Guiding Promise’ was bred by award-winning clematis expert Raymond Evison. Introduced in 2010 to mark the centenary of the Girl Guides, this compact, medium-sized plant gives an impressive display over a long flowering season from spring until autumn.

This delightful compact climber flowers all the way along its stems, resulting in masses of large, mauve-purple flowers with a splash of burgundy from the ground upwards from late spring and into autumn. A beautiful feature for fences, trellises, and arches and is especially effective in containers.

‘Guiding Promise’ loves a sunny spot, where it can be trained up trellis for a vertical wall effect or allowed to naturally wind its way through beds and borders. Easy to look after, growing to just 1.2m (4ft) it’ll never get out of control. A trim in February or March, cutting back stems to 15cm (6in) is all that’s needed.

Supplied an established plant in a 7cm pot, ready for planting.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • 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.

Care Guide

  • 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.
