An eye-catching Clematis displaying crimson blooms with crinkled borders

The perfect means of enriching your Summer garden with colour, this Clematis (Ernest Markham) displays several crimson petals with charmingly crinkled margins. Each petal is sparsely distributed; forming a delicate silhouette, enabling their vibrant colouring to be this plant's leading feature. Contrasting against these bright red tones is the creamy-yellow stamens of each bloom, whilst this plant's foliage will add gentle greenery to a trellis or pergola. A faultless companion for climbing roses, if heavily pruned, this Clematis can be grown in a container on your patio. This Clematis has additionally achieved the Royal Horticultural Society's 'Award of Garden Merit'; affirming this variety's reliable performance, stable form and colour, good constitution, and resistance to pests and diseases.

  • Hardiness: Clematis plants can be found growing throughout temperate regions, so are well accustomed to the UK’s climate.
