A marvellously voluptuous new clematis for 2017 from acclaimed grower Raymond Evison, Charmaine is a delicious concoction of large, ruffled raspberry red petals with drizzled white edges and a yellow centre. It is unusual in that it bears both double and semi-double blooms in tandem. The foliage is slighter darker than usual and shiny. Flowering from early summer until early autumn, this is a marvellous clematis for containers and for growing up an obelisk or over pergolas or arches.
Any aspect will suit this plant, (except north facing) but due to its heavy double flowers it is best grown through other wall-trained shrubs or climbers where the blooms will receive some protection from rain and strong winds.
