Plant description

Clematis 'Piilu' is a vigorous, woody climbing perennial vine with a profusion of large flowers through spring and summer which cover the plant. The first flowers in spring are double, and later flowers come single. The flowers are light purple with an attractive darker purple stripe to the middle of the petals. The plant likes a fertile well drained soil, and regular watering. Fertilise through the warmer months, and mulch to keep the roots cool and to deter weeds. Prune annually and regularly remove dead flower heads. It is a great climbing plant for balcomies, fences and screens, and can be container grown as well as in the open garden. It likes a sunny position with a cool root run.
