A very pretty, pink and white clematis launched by Raymond Evison with HRH The Countess of Wessex at The RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2012. Ideal for planting in a container or in a smaller garden due to its compact form; its ability to thrive in a north facing aspect or in a shady area also means that it is a highly versatile plant.

This clematis (Evipo073(n)) looks lovely grown through other wall-trained plants and perfectly complements grey-leaved or variegated foliage. Large flowered clematis were introduced in the 19th century, but Old Man’s Beard (Clematis vitalba) commonly seen in British hedgerows, is an indigenous relation.


Flowers: From June to September

  • Moist, well drained
  • Container
  • Partial sunlight
  • North, East, West facing

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 scramble through. Minor pruning to tidy in early spring and after flowering .
