Enjoy the rare, rich-red flowers of clematis Nubia as the flowers open out from large buds every summer and show off large open petals in rich crimson. Bred to grow in a compact way Nubia is a delightful variety to grow in a pot and place on a sunny patio or balcony.
Nubia is attractive to pollinating insects like bees and butterflies, which are useful to have in the garden when you are growing crops. They stick around and pollinate the flowers of crops like tomatoes and strawberries, as well as tree blossoms, to turn the flowers into tasty fruit.
Clematis Nubia is a beautiful patio climber with flowers that work well with the dark colours of bedding like dark petunia or contrasting white flowers of busy Lizzies, white lobelias and even yellow marigolds.
Prune all the stems of Nubia back to around 30cm (12in) above the soil surface in February. Your plant then has time to put up stems over summer and reveal glorious flowers for much of the summer. Flowers appear along the whole height of the stems when you prune this way, otherwise flowers tend to amass only at the top.
Give a rich feed of Plant Food Concentrate every spring to ascertain the most impressive show of flowers on healthy, thriving plants.
