Flowers shine with a glory that’s all their own. Not many are fortunate enough to be adorned with the memory of a princess. However the Princess Diana Clematis is one of those such flowers. It carries its name well, being delicately shaped with beauty similar to a tulip. It’s green foliage contrasted next to the bright pink, two inch flower with yellow stamen will add astonishing color to any garden or landscape. Making its entrance in late summer and blooming through autumn, the Princess Diana Clematis earned a place of honor with the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit! That in itself will make any garden special!
This deciduous perennial is a climber that is perfect for a trellis or as a ground cover. It will be your flowering best friend to blend unattractive areas such as walls or fences with nature and can add a touch of beauty as it welcomes the opportunity to intertwine with other plants and bushes. Bees, butterflies and hummingbirds are drawn to it while deer and rabbits find it easy to resist. It’s a low maintenance plant that requires a simple pruning when its leaves die in winter. Give it full sun to partial shade and a moist root system. In turn it will pay you back with an overflowing abundance of stunning flowers.
Princess Diana Clematis Care
It’s a low maintenance plant that requires a simple pruning when its leaves die in winter. Give it full sun to partial shade and a moist root system. In turn it will pay you back with an overflowing abundance of stunning flowers. With simple, yet proper care it will bring forth a beautiful performance of blooms that are also said to be shaped like a trumpet. Fertilize once monthly using a 10-10-10 fertilizer. Surrounding with low to ground perennials will help shade and keep the roots moist.
This clematis is in pruning group 3, which means it blooms on new growth each summer. It will lose its leaves in the fall so be sure to prune thoroughly in winter for a healthy and full return of blooms the following summer. For winter weather that drops below freezing, protect the bases of your clematis with a heavy blanket of mulch to keep the root system healthy and happy.
Princess Diana Clematis Spacing
With proper care, your Princess Diana Clematis will grow to be 6 to 8 feet tall so they should be spaced 2‘- 3’ apart. If your plant doesn’t bloom, check the soil for adequate moisture and drainage. That along with thorough pruning should ensure a healthy and full plant in the future. Keeping its mature size in mind will help you determine where you want your garden to grow, whether it stays in containers, becomes a ground cover or shows off as a beautiful hedge.
