Beautiful, bright cherry pink flowers in May and June amid purple-flushed, mid-green leaves. This award-winning form of montana clematis is ideal for covering a wall or fence in a north-facing site. A less vigorous relation of Clematis montana 'Pink Perfection', it's perfect for small gardens.
- Garden care: No routine pruning is necessary. If the spread of the plant needs to be restricted prune immediately after flowering, cutting back overlong shoots to healthy buds. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
