    Sumptuous, double, candyfloss pink, early spring flowers with creamy-yellow centres, followed by silvery seedheads retained throughout the summer. This clematis looks lovely scrambling through a strong tree or shrub. Ideal for a north-facing site, it's also known as the downy clematis since the new shoots are covered with down.

  • 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.
  • Humans: Skin irritant; Pets: Harmful if eaten
