Bred by World renowned Clematis breeder, Raymond Evison, the Acropolis(TM) Boulevard(R) Evipo078(N) series of compact, long-flowering clematis have taken the world by storm.
Bred specifically for smaller gardens and patios where conventional clemati can be too vigorous, they have a much reduced height at 1.5M or so, and a much higher flower count, which last much longer. This makes them ideal for growing in larger pots with trellis, or obelisks, or even hanging baskets, where they flower all summer long.
This lovely collection includes one plant each of three of the best varieties:
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.
