A lovely, compact, deciduous Clematis producing a profusion of striking, rasperry-pink flowers around 15cm to 20cm across. The blooms typically have six to eight, slightly recurved tepals each of which carry a large, deep-pink central bar. The tepals outer edges will fade to a pale-pink or white adding to the beauty of this flower. 

'Carnaby' typically flowers in two waves with the first in late spring to summer and again in late summer to autumn. This hardy and compact Clematis is well-suited to smaller gardens or container growth.

PRUNING GROUP 2

Pruning will help keep your clematis vines healthy.  Pruning the dense tangle of stems opens the remaining shoots to air and light which encourages healthy growth and reduces the incidence of rot and disease.

Group 2 Clematis bloom in late spring on last years growth and again in summer on the new growth.  This group require a little more care when pruning as if you cut back too heavily after the first flush you will reduce the number of flowers on show in summer.

Prune back lightly to a set of strong buds in winter and remove any dead stems and trim to tidy the plant. After the first flush of flowers in spring, remove the spent flowers to encourage new growth and a stronger second flush in summer. Feed with a good quality liquid fertiliser after pruning to encourage growth.
