Clematis 'Olympia' is one of the ground-breaking new series of Acropolis(TM) Boulevard(R) Evipo078(N) clematis bred by award-winning clematis expert Raymond Evison. With large, eye-catching, purple-blue flowers on a compact, medium-sized plant, 'Olympia' gives a delightful display from early spring to late summer.
This compact clematis blooms all the way along its stems, resulting in a proliferation of large, rich purple-blue flowers from the ground upwards all summer and into late autumn. Makes a beautiful feature of fences, trellises, and arches and is especially effective in containers.
'Olympia' loves a sunny spot, where it can be trained up trellis for a vertical wall effect or allow to naturally wind its way through beds and borders.
Free-flowering and extremlely hardy, this clematis is perfect for decorating fences and its compact growth is ideally suited to a pot, planter or even hanging baskets!
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.
