Buy Evison Clematis

 

We can guarantee that we have selected a suitable Evison Clematis for every garden situation directly from the grower for you. We offer different heights and colours from the following categories, in which Raymond Evison classifies his new cultivars, so there is no need to hold back when it comes to buying an easy to grow Evison Clematis.

 

  • Evison Clematis in the "Boulevard" collection - small but powerful
  • Evison Clematis in the "Gardini" collection - medium and classic
  • Evison Clematis in the "Regal" collection - filled and "very lovely

 

The advantages of our Evison Clematis

 

  • From the 30-centimetre dwarf clematis to the 3-metre clematis, everything is included 
  • Suitable for the city, even for the smallest balcony or shady backyard 
  • Very many compact varieties for containers
  • Modern, healthy new breeds
  • Winterproof and easy to clean
  • Rich floral blooms in two batches (early summer and late summer) or flowers from spring to autumn (depending on the cutting category)
  • Partially VERY large flowers 
  • Also suitable for garden beginners

Before we come to the care tips for clematis (further down in the text) first a few explanatory words about the categories of Evison Clematis and which varieties you can order in the shop.

In the "Boulevard" collection you will find the small clematis, not small in terms of flower size - by far not - but small in terms of height, so that here the hobby gardener who only has a balcony, a small city garden and also those who have a large garden, but are simply looking for a beautiful clematis for the terrace or as a centre point in a perennial bed, will find what he is looking for. The clematis in this extremely popular collection usually only grow between 60 and 150 centimetres high and flower from base to tip. 

 

In the "Gardini" collection, we then find the medium-high clematis, which is lovely to grow up on a trellis on the house wall, on a pergola or over a wall and which can also climb picturesquely into a small tree. Here we find varieties that grow between 1.5 and almost 3 metres high and that typically flower on last year's AND this year's shoots, resulting in two lush flowers in early summer and in late summer. 

The "Regal" collection then includes the double flowering clematis, which is either gracefully light or semi-double or dramatically and pompously double, similar to the pompoms of a cheerleader. These clematises usually grow between 1.5 and 2.5 metres high and usually flower on the old and new shoots like the sisters from the "Gardini" collection.

Pruning Evison Clematis - a slightly more detailed guide

 

With the Evison Clematis, there are actually only two categories for cutting (with one exception, more on this later). As a rule, one can say that the small "Boulevard" varieties are cut down to 15-20 centimetres in early spring (February to March) and then flower on the new shoots early in summer until late summer. This is simple, practical and really beginner-friendly.

The Evison Clematis from the "Gardini" and "Regal" collections should be pruned a little in early spring (February-March), only the upper third at most, as these varieties flower on last year's shoots AND this year's shoots. It is best to take a close look at the individual shoots - starting at the top - and then cut back the frozen or weak shoots by a third, until a strong pair of buds are formed. Last year's shoot will then form side shoots on which the first flower bloom of the year begins as early as early summer, usually with particularly large flowers in large numbers. In the meantime, Evison Clematis then produces new shoots that provide the second main flowering cycle in late summer, which sometimes produces somewhat smaller flowers, but no less beautiful than the first flowering cycle. 

Evison Clematis from the "Regal" collection are usually treated in the same way as those from the "Gardini" collection, as the only difference is that they flower double. Usually, in late summer, the flowers of the second floral cycle are also double or semi-double, but sometimes simple, unfilled flowers creep in. However, this is far less than with old varieties, which almost never bloom double in the second flush. In this sense, the Evison Clematis is a clear improvement. 

The good news about the clematis "Gardini" and the "Regal" series: They are still easier to handle - if you think that shortening the shoots is too complicated. Both groups also flower when they are cut down completely (intentionally or unintentionally) in spring, just like their little sisters from the "Boulevard" series! However, the very large flowers of the first florets in early summer are not necessary (because they bloom on the old shoots), but you can enjoy the second florets in late summer (on the young, new shoots). So you can't go wrong, no matter which Evison Clematis you choose. 

And now for the exception mentioned above: the Evison collection now includes a charming evergreen clematis, a little darling called 'Kimiko', which should not be cut at all. This very special beauty conjures up a waterfall in spring (exceptionally) with small, white flowers and later in the season forms a pretty green background for e.g. annual summer flowers in bright colours. 

By the way, for each of the Evison Clematis, we have in our program, in the text below you can see the cutting groups. 

 

The best location for Evison Clematis

 

In general: All clematis like penumbra best. They owe this to the genes of their ancestors, who liked to climb the trees at the edge of the forest. Thanks to modern breeding work such as that of Raymond Eviston, clematis today can also tolerate sun and even full shade (the latter, however, leads to fewer flowers). In principle, all Evison hybrids can be planted in both partial shade and full sun, but in a full sun location, you should bear in mind that the pale-coloured flowers will be slightly lighter than in partial shade. Raymond Evison himself recommends planting the very light colours in the penumbra or to a place where at least the hardest midday sun can be softened a bit so that e.g. a soft light pink does not lighten to almost white. He suggests planting the darker varieties in the sun and the lighter ones in the penumbra. However, since most Evison Clematis grow very compactly and are perfect for pot culture, you could consider using a pot with rollers and rolling it to a place with midday shade on particularly hot days, or you could buy some shade fabric for plants, which can be placed over the plant as a kind of sunscreen if the heat and intensity of the sun should become too much. 

 

Which soil do the Evison Clematis like? 

 

They want humus and permeable soil.  If we think again of the ancestors of the modern Evison Clematis, we must agree with them. They still want the moist, lush forest soil of their ancestors and we can easily give them that by adding plenty of our own compost when planting. Since this is known to be scarce in every garden and is sometimes not available just when we need it, we advise in such cases to use a high-quality planting soil that is quite close to our own compost. "High quality" is really the keyword that matters. You can find the appropriate varieties in specialist shops or you can take a look here at our "Fertile Soil No. 2", which we have specially designed for planting all your favourite Lubera plants. But different rules apply in containers than in the garden soil! We can't point out often enough how important it is to take a really good, high-quality potted plant soil here, all the more so as we are talking about clematis and perennial plants that should be able to stand a long time in the pot. Potting soil contains additives (perlite, vermiculite, expanded clay or similar), which prevent the soil from compressing, collapsing after a few waterings and silting up. In the long run, this can lead to the death of the plant roots, at least of those that are supposed to grow and flourish again and again from this very soil. You can find such a high-quality potted plant soil in local specialist shops or in our "Fertile Soil No. 1"

 

Planting Evison Clematis - a few tips

 

Clematis like to be planted deep and having cool feet.  When planting Evison Clematis, we recommend placing the root ball approx. 2 to 5 centimetres deeper into the planting hole and then filling it up with (good, high-quality soil!) and watering it. This makes it easier for the plant to regenerate from the root ball after a hard winter and also helps the plant to renew itself again after a possible infestation with clematis wilt. Evison Clematis are - it should be said - pleasingly little susceptible to this infestation of all old clematis varieties. It is relatively easy to provide cool feet with garden soil, to do this, simply provide a lot of humus in the soil and a lot of moisture and place the plant next to a few perennials (or rose bushes if it is a higher clematis variety). This is more difficult in a container, as it can heat up very much in the sun. The best thing to do is to take a large pot that is high enough for the clematis roots to anchor well. A pot of 45 cm in diameter and 45 cm in height or depth would be ideal. Then there is the second advantage that clematis wants and offer us gardeners: ...they love companion plants that kiss their feet or shade them. It is best to use annual summer flowers, which normally develop little root mass and therefore do not compete too strongly with roots in the limited space of the container. Another advantage is that these can be easily removed in autumn and the clematis can be mulched better in a container.

 

Evison Clematis fertilise and water

 

Anyone who grows so strongly and healthily and produces one large flower after another deserves good nutrition. Clematis gets the best start in garden life if you add a slow-release fertiliser, for example, our "Fruitilizer Seasonal Fertilizer Plus", right at the time of planting. This releases the nutrients slowly and gently. In addition, you can add liquid fertiliser to the watering every ten days. Lubera wouldn't be Lubera if we couldn't also offer the right thing there, namely our "Fuitilizer Instant Bloom", which is specially designed to help flowering plants do their strenuous job so that the flowering cycle is as lush as possible and lasts for a long time. 

 

Which climbing aid should I use? Do I also have to tie up the clematis?

 

Both low and high clematis are climbing plants, so they need something to hold on to in order to reach the top. For this purpose, they form delicate tendrils with which they can hold on to their framework, be it a lattice, obelisk or shrub. These tendril organs are relatively thin in a clematis, and so one should keep an eye on the fact that the supporting framework for which one chooses is not too thick. If the intermediate struts or bars are too thick, the clematis cannot wrap around them and eventually tips over. The ideal would be struts in pencil thickness or those that are only slightly thicker (and by that we don't mean the thin disposable pencils that are given away for free in some places nowadays, but the good old, handy pencils we all had to write with at school). In addition, you should tie up a clematis (especially in windy areas) for safety, because the joy of growth and above all the abundance of flowers in modern clematis means that individual shoots, because of their eagerness, don't think of holding on to anything and start to become (flower-)top-heavy. To tie up clematis shoots, it is best to use a soft ribbon from a specialist shop rather than thin, strong strings. These would chafe the soft shoots in the wind and possibly cause them to break off. There are wider tying straps for plants in specialist shops, like the very wide tree tying straps made of soft plastic, only narrower, of course. Some have a velcro mechanism, which makes tying even easier. Practically speaking, these tapes are usually green, so they are not noticeable at all on the Evison Clematis, which all have beautiful, fresh green leaves.  

 

Who is behind these sensational new breeds? 

 

When you talk about modern clematis, you automatically think of Raymond Evison from the British Channel Island of Guernsey, who for more than 50 years has been searching for forest vines all over the world, collecting them, breeding them with them and presenting new varieties at the famous Chelsea Flower Show every year, almost always winning a prestigious gold medal for his presentation. And rightly so, because his clematis are all among the best on the market. When you buy an Evison Clematis, you can be sure that you have an easy-care, healthy, long-lasting plant in your garden, which develops many, usually very large flowers, and this in modern usually reserved colours, which fit into really every plant and colour concept. The focus of Evison's breeding program is on very compact varieties that are perfect for pot culture in smaller gardens, on a terrace or balcony. Evison breeds and sells these varieties in a joint venture with the Danish company Poulsen Roser A/S, which is very well known in the rose world. 

 

Raymond Evison was born in 1944 and started working and - in his case, it has to be said - living in the garden world at the age of 15. In 1984 he was able to start his own nursery and mail-order business on the beautiful Channel Island of Guernsey. Since then he has not only made a name for himself with over 100 new clematis varieties but also as an author, lecturer and president/board member of the most prestigious English societies in the gardening life of the green, flowering island of the garden-loving British. Every year the classic, humble gentleman gardener travels the world to give lectures and search for clematis varieties for his ever-expanding range. Some of his beautiful clematises have been published in his honour on a Guernsey Post stamp series. 

 

Conclusion: Evison Clematis are for everyone!

 

Raymond Evison of the lovely Channel Island of Guernsey has, with breeding passion and lovable British stubbornness, bred clematis for decades that are simpler, healthier and more diverse than anything that has gone before. The old varieties still have their justification, no question, but the modern, compact hybrids are perfectly suited to the needs of today's gardeners, and they usually no longer have large mansions with park-like grounds (nor employed home gardeners). Today's gardener has a small garden and rarely venerable trees or metre-high stone walls into or over which a clematis of tens of metres in length can climb. Today, we have small terraced house gardens, narrow suburban gardens, a balcony in the city centre or maybe just a dreary backyard in the old building quarter that we want to spice up. Or we want a small, pretty clematis as an eye-catcher in our shrub bed or a bucket of clematis as a greeting in front of our front door or just one that decorates our house wall but doesn't immediately envelop the whole house. The Evison Clematis are all made for gardeners like you and me who want to make their garden SIMPLE, who don't have time to read whole books to care for a particular plant and who want to get quick results because they just want to enjoy their garden! Our Evison Clematis are as modern as the demands of today's gardeners. Planting and then "harvesting" magnificent flowers is as simple as that - year after year. Just give it a try with one of the beautiful varieties from our assortment. Maybe you will fall in love with this extraordinary flowering plant and start collecting clematis like the English gentleman from the beautiful British Channel Island - who knows?
