I’ve just bought the most amazing new plant; it is a red clematis called Rebecca.
This great clematis is from Raymond Evison and was the Chelsea feature for 2008, it was named for his eldest daughter and has brilliant red flowers!
It flowers late spring/early summer and again in late summer. It can be planted in any aspect and will reach a height of around 6ft. Give is a light pruning in early spring to keep it in good health and producing these wonderful red flowers. Suitable for growing in a container as long as some support is available.
The specimen I have isn’t a bright red but it is the most red I’ve seen in a clematis and is a great buy.
I’ve found it at Thompson & Morgan for £5.99 for a young plant or £9.99 for three to be despatched at the end of October. This may be a limited offer, let me know if the price changes and I’ll update the page.
