'Hagley Hybrid' gets its name from Hagley Hall where it was raised by Percy Picton. It is well-loved for its compact habit and free-flowering nature. Throughout summer, it is covered in rosy-mauve flowers which need to be given some shade to produce the best colouration. As with all the late-flowering clematis, pruning is easy. Simply cut back the stems to a pair of strong buds 15-20cm (6-8in) above ground level before growth begins in early spring. This pruning technique makes late-flowering clematis useful for training into shrubs, trees and climbing roses as the clematis growth is removed each spring and so never becomes too much of a burden on its supporting plant.
