Clematis jackmanii is a deciduous climbing vine that can reach impressive heights of up to 4 meters. Its long, slender stems are adorned with glossy, dark green leaves that have a leathery texture. The real charm of Clematis jackmanii lies in its flowers, which are its most prominent feature. The plant produces large, striking blooms that can measure around 10-15CM in diameter. The flowers have velvety, deep violet to purple petals that create a stunning display.
In Ireland, it typically blooms from June to September. During this period, the vine is transformed into a colourful spectacle, and as a result, it attracts pollinators like bees and butterflies, which contributes to the ecological diversity of local gardens. This plant flourishes in areas with full to partial sunlight, making it suitable for various garden locations.
One of the most appealing aspects of this striking shrub is its versatility. Grow it along fences, trellises, and pergolas for the best effect.
