    Sweetly scented pink flowers in May and June amid purple-flushed mid-green leaves. This vigorous montana clematis is ideal for covering a wall or fence in sun or partial shade. Since it often outgrows the space intended for it for a small garden we'd advise the less-vigorous Clematis montana var. rubens 'Freda'.



  • Garden care: No routine pruning is necessary. If the spread of the plant needs to be restricted prune immediately after flowering cutting back overlong shoots to healthy buds. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
