Clematis Shimmer bursts into large star-shaped flowers in midsummer making an exotic show climbing up a trellis or wall. The luxuriant but rich colour of the flowers make this variety a lovely companion plant, climbing through and complementing other plants. The vine-like stems produce attractive mid-green, deciduous foliage.

This clematis (Evipo028) 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 midsummer to early autumn

  • Moist, well drained
  • Container
  • Full sun, partial shade
  • All aspects

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. Minor pruning to tidy in February/March.
