Why We Love It

The ruby flowers of Clematis 'Niobe' slowly mature to a soft wine red.

This medium-sized climber grows to approximately 1.5 to 2.5 metres and flowers from late spring to early autumn.

How to Plant

This plant needs well-drained soil but doesn't mind the pH level. It thrives in full sun or semi-shade. Water it regularly during dry periods.

Into the Ground

    When you're ready to plant your 'Niobe' clematis, grab your spade and a fork, along with some horticultural grit and a watering can or hosepipe.

    • Mix grit into the top layer of your soil to improve drainage.
    • Dig a hole twice the width of the plant's rootball.
    • Pop your clematis on the hole, with the top of the rootball level with the soil surface.
    • Backfill the hole and gently tamp down the soil around the roots. Water well.
    • Add a layer of mulch to keep the ground moist.

Into a Pot

    'Niobe' is highly suitable for growing in containers, where it will cascade over the side. You'll need some potting soil, potting compost or a mixture of the two, along with your trowel and a watering can.

    • Improve drainage by raising your container on pot feet.
    • Add a layer of soil or compost to the bottom of your container.
    • Place your plant on the soil with the top of its rootball a few centimetres below the rim of the pot.
    • Backfill around the roots with your compost, tamping down gently as you go. Water well.
