Clematis 'Etoile Violette'

Deep purple flowers with gold eye carried in great profusion from June to August. If the top third is removed straight after flowering a second flush will occur with flowers well into autumn. It's difficult to sing the praises of Clematis 'Etoile Violette' too highly. Plant in any aspect and hard prune in early spring, it will reach 3M. Although its parentage is not known it has long been regarded as a viticella cultivar and forms part of the national collection. Raised by Morel in 1885 it has an A.G.M.
