Clematis cirrhosa var. purpurascens 'Freckles'
Evergreen Clematis - 2.5 litres
Clematis cirrhosa var. purpurascens 'Freckles' is a much underrated evergreen self clinging climbing Clematis. It has lovely glossy dark green leaves that take on a bronzed tinge in the winter. This foliage provides a useful all year coverage.The highlight and real joy are the scented flowers, which take centre stage from late autumn through winter and well into the following spring. 5cm across with sturdy weather proof petals, each has a cream background with reddish maroon freckles and prominent yellow stamen. Simply stunning! Excellent for arches and pergolas.
