Brighten up your garden in the dreary winter months with this fabulous evergreen, winter flowering Clematis 'Freckles'. Its dainty nodding blooms make an appearance when the garden can be at its bleakest and are an uplifting and cheery sight indeed!
Easy to care for and needs no pruning so can be planted anywhere where the sun reaches - even in the most inaccessible spots.
Clematis Cirrhosa 'Freckles' is a vigorous evergreen climber with attractive, 3-lobed, dark green leaves that shine with a bronze glow through the winter. The pale-yellow nodding flowers are heavily speckled with maroon and are produced from late autumn right through to spring and are followed with attractive, silky seed heads.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for immediate planting - or if you prefer you can pot it on into a 1L pot ready for growing on and planting out the following year.
Plant with the crown of the plant 5-8cm deep to encourage new shoots to grow from below ground level. Clematis prefer to have their roots cool, so try and plant so that the roots are shaded. If you are planting in a sunny position, place some pieces of slate or flat stones on the soil after planting or use groundcover plants to keep the roots out of the heat.
