Clematis Rebecca ™ Evipo016. 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.
Sumptious Red Flowers In Profusion! - A rare colour with her beautiful creamy-yellow stamens at the centre of each flower. This Hardy perennial clematis is an absolute beauty with a very long flowering period thoughout late Spring and the Summer making it an ideal patio showstopper.
It has the added advantage of being able to be grown in any aspect and has a compact growing habit to a height of 2.-2.5m with flowers starting low down on the vine. It is as rich a red as you can now find in a clematis and if grown in full sun you will find the flowers get darker and richer. Also ideal for growing through other wall trained tree or shrubs and I have mine gowing with a lonicera baggesens gold and the sumptious red against the foil of gold is stunning. Give it a light prune late Feb early March and top dress with our pelleted clematis feed and she will reward you well.
Rebecca ™ was named after clematis breeder Raymond Evisons eldest daughter.
