Delicate, pale pinkish-mauve, early summer flowers with striking pink stripes and contrasting reddish-brown centres. This large-flowered clematis is best grown on a north-facing wall or in shade since the pale pink flowers fade badly in strong sun. It is perfect for training over a pergola or arch, alongside a late-flowering variety.
- 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 well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
