With a rich red flower and a wispy purple centre, Clematis Nubia (Evipo079) is a stunning, new compact variety from Raymond Evison's Boulevard® series. The combination of strong red tepals with a dark centre make for a strikingly bold flower that is displayed best in a sunny spot, unlike other strong-coloured clematis, which are prone to fading.
This is a bushy, compact variety that everyone will have room for; it is a particularly good choice for a pot or planter on the terrace. C. Nubia is so free and long flowering, we are certain it will become a classic clematis of the future.
It will show vigorous regrowth each spring, and can be enjoyed indoors before planting outside.
