Free flowering Clematis Bernadine is highly valued as a climber because it will bloom magnificently in the partial shade, brightening up a dappled wall or trellis. The large, single flowers open in early summer to reveal ravishing maroon tipped white anthers. Its restrained habit makes it ideal for smaller spaces, courtyard gardens or in a container. 


This clematis (Evipo061) looks lovely grown through other wall-trained plants and perfectly complements grey-leaved or variegated foliage. Large flowered clematis were introduced from the Orient in the 19th century, but Old Man’s Beard (Clematis vitalba) commonly seen in British hedgerows, is an indigenous relation.


Flowers: From early summer to early autumn

  • Moist, well drained

As Clematis like cool roots, try to position so that the roots will be shaded from the sun by another plant. Bear in mind the space they will need to climb and provide a suitable structure - trellis, wall, fence or other plant - to climb through. In late winter /early spring prune back to 12cm
