Clematis 'Princess Kate' is a Texensis-Viorna type hybrid with unique, outward facing, tulip-shaped flowers. The blooms have strikingly contrasting colours with a burgundy reddish purple on the outside, creamy white on the inside, and plum-purple stamens. This is a popular and unforgettable variety with flowers appearing profusely from July to September. The bell-shaped clematis flowers are sterile so there is no seed production.

Clematis vines are most often planted near a trellis, patio wall, or some structure for support. They can also be planted sprawling over shrubs, stumps, or through perennial gardens.

Clematis is best planted in a location where the foliage and flowers are mostly in the sun, but the roots are kept cool and moist in the shade. Consider using mulch around the root zone in summer and fall. Pruning Group: 3

Pruning Groups:
Group 1 – Flowers only on old wood (previous year). Prune after spring flowering.
Group 2 – Flowers on both old and new wood. Little pruning should be done for woody-stemmed members of this Group. If cut to the ground or pruned in fall or spring, flowering will be reduced or delayed, but not prevented.
Group 3 – Flowers only on new wood. Can be cut to the ground in fall or spring.
