Clematis 'Franziska Maria® Evipo008(N)' .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.
An Evison/Poulsen cultivar introduced at the Chelsea Flower Show, this clematis is named after Raymond Evison’s youngest daughter: Franziska. 'Franziska Maria' is a new double Clematis that far outperforms any other double on the market! Unlike most double clematis, this new variety blooms double on both the old wood in early summer and the new growth in later summer. Most double blooming Clematis feature single blooms on the second bloom of the year. The 4-6" blue-purple, Dahlia-like, flowers are very free flowering, and continue nonstop from June through September! Compact and healthy foliage make this new clematis ideal for containers.
It also looks outstanding with variegated wall trained shrubs. It is suitable for cut flowers.
