Buy Clematis 'Minuet' clematis (group 3): Long-flowering, well into autumn

This climber is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained, neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Open bell-shaped, white flowers, each with purple-pink veining that becomes more pronounced around the outer edges, are seen from midsummer to late autumn. Ideal for covering a pergola or arch, it also does well in large pots or containers filled with John Innes No 2 compost as long as it is kept well fed and watered.

  • Garden care: In early spring cut back the previous year's stems to a pair of strong buds about 15-20cm (6-8in) above ground-level and apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the plant, avoiding the immediate crown.

Very delicate flowers


First year only but flowers are pretty but tiny so not a huge impact unless close. Rather a flimsy plant but second year for me will prove whether good plant or not.

Hi Would this clematis be suitable for a windy site? Thanks


Hello there No I wouldn't recommend using this clematis for a windy site. You really need a tougher climber,- something like a Lonicera would be better. I have attached below a link to a couple of climbers that would be better suited. Hope this helps
