Clematis montana 'Elizabeth'Sold Out
The sweetly scented blooms of Clematis mont. Elizabeth are so profuse they almost completely cover the foliage when they are out. The buds first appear in spring, as pointed pink swellings, and when they open they reveal simple four petalled flowers in a sort of shimmering pink with yellow centres, which are set off well against the backdrop of olive green foliage with coppery overtones. Can easily reach 10 metres if left unchecked, so great for covering walls, fences, unsightly views etc. If size needs to be controlled simply cut back to healthy buds after flowering, which will occur in late spring and early summer. Suits most soil conditions, given reasonable drainage, and like most clematis, happiest with it's feet in the shade and head in the sun. Usefully, will adapt to any aspect, so good on a north facing site.
