Outstanding Qualities

The bright raspberry colored flowers of 'Princess Diana' are reminiscent of lily-shaped tulips and are born above the dark green foliage from summer through autumn. This deciduous vine can reach from six to eight feet during the growing season and is quite lovely growing on a traditional structure like a fence or trellis; however, it can also be striking growing through other climbers as well as scrambling through large shrubs or small trees.

Culture Notes
This clematis will grow and flower best in full sun. Provide a location with rich well-drained soil where it can be regularly watered during dry weather. Plant vines that are well rooted and at least two years old. In our climate planting too deeply can smother the roots. Set young plants at the same depth they were in their nursery pots. Clematis are heavy feeders and appreciate fertilizing in spring. This clematis dies back to the ground every winter and blooms on new growth in the summer. Cut last season’s vines back to 4 to 6 inches tall in late winter.
