  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil, neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Majestic, deep ruby-red summer flowers appearing almost black on opening, with golden-yellow centres and mid-green leaves. This compact, large-flowered clematis is perfect for growing in a container in partial shade. While it takes some time to establish the sight of the crushed velvet-like petals unfurling is well worth the wait.

  • 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.
