Features

notes
Part of the Montana family, Clematis Marjorie is unusual in having double flowers in the softest cream and pink, creating a pretty, almost frilly effect covering a wall or fence. Just as vigorous as other Montanas, Marjorie is especially valuable in being able to beautify a north-facing wall. The deciduous foliage has a subtle bronze tint.
Insights

Clematis have their roots in the Far East. The first example, C. Viticella, arrived in Europe in the mid-16th century. Two centuries later, the Victorians bred numerous varieties and their popularity continues. The native climber is C. Vitalba, a familiar sight in autumn hedgerows, the fluffy seed heads explaining the traditional name: Old Man’s Beard.
