Bred by Raymond Evison and previewed at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2008 this glorious Clematis has only recently become available on the market. The large flowers are a rich red (which is very rare in the Clematis world) and they have a wispy boss of creamy-yellow stamens at their centre. They first appear in a profuse burst of colour in late spring or early summer but then will continue to flower intermittently throughout the rest of the summer and into early autumn. They look spectacular when teamed with deep purple.

  • Garden care: Remove dead and damaged stems before growth begins in early spring cutting all remaining stems back to where strong buds are visible. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
