Available exclusively to Crocus in 2019, we have just a limited number of these glorious climbers, which have been introduced to mark the birth of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor - the son of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. A summer-flowering clematis, it produces an abundance of pinkish mauve flowers in May and June, and then a second (less prolific) flush usually starts up again in September. Use it as you would a traditional climber, and plant it against a wall or fence, or, as it is relatively compact, it can be potted up - or even left to scramble through the border. Tolerant of a little light shade, it will flower best when grown in full sun.
- 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.
