This new clematis will usually flower non-stop from midsummer to the end of autumn, and as the flowers are pretty prolific, it puts on a really spectacular display. The flowers themselves are a rich reddish pink, are slightly nodding on the stem, and can grow up to 7cm across. A viticella type, it also shows good resistance to wilt, and it will work really well in both borders and pots.
- Garden care: In early spring cut back the previous year's stems to a pair of strong buds about 15-20cm (6-8in) above ground-level and apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the plant, avoiding the immediate crown.
