Clematis ‘Miss Bateman’ is a compact, free-flowering, early, large-flowered clematis. The rounded, single white flowers are tinged slightly with pink, creating a subdued pastel shade. The main flush of blooms appears in late spring to early summer and is often followed by a second show of blooms in late summer to early autumn.
Grow Clematis ‘Miss Bateman’ in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Falling into pruning Groups Two, remove any dead or weak stems in late winter or early spring and cut remaining stems back to the highest pair of strong-growing buds. To encourage blooms to cover the whole plant, train the stems so that they are evenly spaced on their support. As new growth appears in mid-spring, train this to fill any gaps.
