    Masses of rich yellow bell-shaped flowers from July to September and finely divided mid-green leaves. One of the most popular varieties of late-flowering clematis this variety is perfect for training over a wall pergola or arch in full sun or partial shade. The large silky seedheads provide interest into the winter months.

  • 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.
