A compact and very showy large flowered Clematis producing masses of beautiful creamy-pink flowers with a cerise central bar and prominent, creamy yellow stamens. The large flowers can be up to 15cm to 20cm across and come in two waves. The first in late spring and early summer followed by a second wave in late summer and early autumn. 

This is an easy to grow Clematis that is shade tolerant and ideal for scrambling through shrubs such as rhododendrons or hydrangea. Dead heading the plant after the first wave of flowers will promote a strong second flush.

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.
