Product description

  • Flowering period: May to June and September

    Large, rose-pink, early summer flowers with deep reddish-pink stripes and mid-green leaves. This clematis is perfect for a sunny site, since the colour holds up better to the bleaching effects of the sun than other large-flowered varieties. Ideal for growing through a climbing rose, strong shrub or tree.

  • Garden care: Remove dead and damaged stems before growth begins in early spring, cutting all remaining stems back to where strong buds are visible. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
