Clematis is such a beautiful flower that carries their own charm, no matter what time or season of year it may be. This stunning, romantic flowering and climbing plant has got an aura of its own. The clematis is often a popular favourite available in various shades of purple and is suitable for many different styles of floral design.

Clematis only started to become available on the flower markets from 2006. Clematis is a family member of Anemone and Ranunculus. There are more than 250 species of Clematis, most of which are garden plant varieties. The name of Clematis in ancient Greek literally means “a climbing plant.” 


The symbolism of Clematis is very intriguing, it stands for mental beauty and ingenuity. Many experts have suggested that this is most likely related to its wonderful and ability to climb around places such as walls and trellises.

Care tips for Clematis

To condition the Clematis for an event, remove the packaging, cut the stems and put them in buckets of fresh, cold water. Add universal flower food into the water. Store in a cool environment.

Clematis flowering stems can last up to three week in a vase if stored in a cold and light room. A light room does not necessarily mean in direct sunlight. Clematis are very thirsty and love water, so don’t like to be placed into water vials (tubes) or foam. If you remove some of the lower foliage, the flowers will last longer. 

If conditioned well, the Clematis blooms will last for approximately 10 to 14 days.
