    Fragrant, deep pink flowers with distinctive yellow centres in May and June and bronze-tinted foliage. This vigorous, early flowering clematis produces a mass of flowers up to 9cm (3½in) across. Ideal for a north-facing site, it's best planted close to an entrance or path where the exquisite almond-scented flowers can be appreciated.

Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
