• Cherry-Red Clematis

    17th June 2012In The GardenStephanie Donaldson

    Several years ago I was sent this clematis whose name was long forgotten until one of our readers (@Ginbath) identified it as Clematis Rebecca. Lacking a convenient space it was hurriedly plonked into a corner of the potager. It is the healthiest clematis in the garden, flowering its socks off and generally making me sorry I didn’t give it a more glamorous home. I think I might risk trying to move it overwinter – it would look wonderful in front of the weatherboarding scrambling up one of the rose pergolas. Cinderella shall go to the border.
