Clematis 'Andromeda' - New Introduction. Compact habit so great for Patio Containers. FLOWERS TWICE! This Hardy Perennial Climber has been container grown so can be planted at any time of the year. We despatch WITH container so the roots are safe.
Clematis 'Andromeda' is a wonderful NEW Clematis with large creamy pink flowers that are brought to life by the darker pink centers and golden yellow stamens. Many have claimed Clematis 'Andromeda' is an improvement on Clematis 'Nelly Moser' with its two flowering periods and growing in sun or shade. Its improvement are its blooms - first with semi-double flowers in May and June and again in September and October with large, single flowers. The flowering height is also improved as it flowers from LOW ON THE VINE. Its compact habit makes it great for the patio area and container growing and will reach a height of 2 -3 metres.
With Clematis 'Andromeda' you only need to light prune in early spring (mid Feb) as it flowers from the previous years growth (take out any weak or damaged stems) and after you have enjoyed the wonderful display of double flowers, prune again (only a light trim to tidy) to boost the vine for its autumn display.
Will grow in sun or semi-shade.
