Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CLEMATIS 'Prince Charles'
Clematis, Late Large-flowered Clematis, Prince Charles Clematis
The showy pale lavender-blue flowers of ‘Prince Charles’ are punctuated by a central star of creamy white stamens. The petals/tepals curve, or reflex, back giving the flowers a distinctive look. This free-flowered clematis cultivar is much like the old-fashioned ‘Perle d'Azur’ but it flowers more heavily on a more compact vine.
Hybrid clematis is a hardy deciduous woody vine that climbs by twining stems. The vines are lined with green compound leaves that appear in spring. The large flowers appear from summer to fall and are followed by fluffy clusters of silvery seeds.
Clematis grows best in sites with full sun and fertile, well-drained soil. It grows and flowers best if its roots remain cool under a vegetative layer or thick mulch. If left unpruned, plants will sporadically flower again in fall. As with most clematis, this selection adds a vertical element to the garden and looks best when trained on a fence, trellis or pergola.
This is a Group 3 clematis, which means it bears flowers on the current year’s growth and can be hard pruned.
