This lovely Clematis opens a deep burgundy-wine red and has a wonderful velvety sheen that adds depth to its colouring. As the blooms mature the colour changes to a deep purply-cerise and the six broad tepals taper to blunt, recurved tips. The stamens have creamy-white filaments and coffee-coloured anthers. A very lovely old, reliable Clematis.
Suitable for growing in containers or planting in the ground.
