Clematis Duchess of Albany
Tiny Tulips on a Vine!
Clematis Duchess of Albany, Clematis texensis 'Duchess of Albany', is a modest grower with 2" wide tulip-like flowers.
The unique flowers have pink petals with darker pink center bars. This clematis is excellent for late summer color blooming from July thru October; makes a fine complement to a climbing rose.
Grow ‘Duchess of Albany’ where the delicate blooms can be admired at close range, such as over a low shrub by a pathway, or in a trellised patio container.
It is a modest grower compared to the large-flowering types, yet its height is dependent on the structure it climbs!
Clematis Duchess of Albany needs a supporting structure to grow properly but will also grow over large shrubs, over walls, cover stumps, and make perfect cover ups for unsightly service areas.
Clematis is easy to grow in a rich, porous, alkaline soil with plenty of room for the roots to spread. Duchess of Albany is one of the most heat tolerant clematis.
Best performance is when the tops are in full sunlight and the roots are shaded, so apply generous mulch or a shallow-rooted ground cover near the base of the vine.
Groom this plant after first flowering by cutting back the top one-third to one-half of some stems.
Clematis Duchess of Albany is a very reliable performer once established; it takes a season or two to get going!
