Clematis montana – Jenny
Clematis montana – ‘Jenny’
A deciduous Clematis, ‘Jenny’ will flower profusely in spring, with 5cm pink-tinged greenish-white double flowers, followed by tufty seed heads in autumn. A wonderful bee-attracting plant, ‘Jenny’ can grow 4.5 metres in height and width, and is the longest flowering of the montana varieties.
Clematis likes to have its roots in a cool spot in the garden, and its head in the sun – keep the roots cool with mulch or the shade of other plants. Provide a support for her to reach her potential and enjoy the spectacular flower display once the plant has established. C. montana is in the group 1 pruning group for clematis, so only give a light tidy if necessary after flowering. Plant into well draining, improved soil – a compost such as Greenlife Soil Co’s General Concentrate will do the trick!
