  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to September

    Masses of sumptuous, double, reddish-purple flowers from mid-summer to late autumn. This vigorous, late flowering clematis makes an excellent partner for a climbing rose, shrub or tree in full sun or part shade. An old variety introduced in the 16th century it's resistant to clematis wilt and copes well with moderate wind.

  • 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.
