LocationIf you want to enjoy the Clematis 'Warszawska Nike' Warsaw Night, spend some time in the location search. The plant likes it basically sunny. A really sunny spot is therefore ideal for this clematis hybrid. In case of need, it can also handle half shadow or shadow relatively well. Incidentally, the root root must always be protected from the sun's rays by shrubs of the flat-rooted groundcover. More importantly, you can find a place for them to climb up. Although it also unfolds as a ground cover quite a certain appeal. But its full glory shows it only with a certain height. The so-called summer-green clematis, which include this Polish cross, work upwards by means of petioles. However, this only succeeds if a climbing aid is available. Of course, the "Warsaw Night" shines particularly effectively on the wall of a house or a shed. However, she also needs a climbing aid here. For example:
Tip: Even an old tree can be used very well as a climbing aid by attaching to its trunk, for example, a fine network. The combination of tree trunk and clematis is even particularly appealing.
groundThe Clematis 'Warszawska Nike' Warsaw Night is basically a very modest plant. This is also reflected in the demands she has on the ground. Basically, there are only two aspects to consider - it should be as humus rich and easy as possible. In case of need, she can handle creeper soils quite well. It is recommended, however, to mix the existing soil in advance with humus. By the way, it must always be ensured that the water drains well and that no waterlogging can form. In case of doubt, the laying of a drainage makes sense. It is also recommended that they always plant a little deeper than other climbing plants. It should be about a hand's breadth deeper. If several plants are placed side by side, the distance between them should be around 60 centimeters.
maintenanceThe Clematis 'Warszawska Nike' Warsaw Night does not need much care. If the location and the soil conditions are reasonably consistent with their requirements, they can largely be left to their own devices. Of course, regular watering is required in the garden. Waterlogging must be avoided at all costs. You should also make sure that the root feet are always well shaded. During flowering, the plant needs plenty of nutrients, which are best supplied by adding humus. Also useful is plant fertilizer, which is available from specialist retailers.

The following applies:
- Section 1: Easy cutting as needed
- Section 2: Strong cut by half of the shoot length
- Section 3: Very strong pruning
