Product Description

'Early Sensation' is an evergreen clematis which grows up to 4m (12ft) tall, with green, divided leaves that emerge with striking bronze tints for an early display of extra colour, making it a stunning centrepiece for your garden.

From March to May, 'Early Sensation' bursts into life, its clusters of delicately alluring, nodding flowers releasing a delicate, sweet fragrance into the air. The large (up to 7cm wide) cupped flowers are pure-white with a greenish-yellow centre.

A superb feature plant that flowers through the spring, Early Sensation is also remarkable for its evergreen leaves which provide year-round interest in your garden.

Robust and fully hardy, this clematis is highly ornamental over a long period and is always in demand and quite rightly so - plant it in free-draining soil by doorways or alongside pergolas to make the most of its pristine blooms and evocative fragrance.

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

Planting your Clematis 'Early Sensation':

  • If planting by a wall or fence - the hole should be dug approx. 30cm (12in) away from its base.
  • If planting by a tree - plant about 2 feet (60cm) away from the trunk leaning the cane of the clematis towards the support.
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once the clematis is in place.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
    Plant with the crown of the plant 5-8cm deep to encourage new shoots to grow from below ground level.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well.

Aftercare advice for your Early Sensation Clematis:

  • Feed in spring with a general-purpose feed, avoiding the stems. Mulch immediately afterwards with organic matter such as well-rotted manure, leaf mould 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.

Pruning Your Clematis:

  • No regular pruning is required, but if necessary, prune immediately after flowering when the danger of frost has passed. Cut new plants back to just above a strong pair of leaf buds about 30cm (12in) above soil level to encourage multiple stems.
  • Established plants just need overlong branches trimming back and any dead or winter-damaged shoots pruned back to a pair of healthy buds.
