Clematis Plants, vines and climbers from UK online store, Raymond Evison Clematis Ltd

Empress ™ Evipo011

A very exotic flower. As the outer sepals fall away, the spiky centre will remain on the flower stalk for up to 3 weeks.

Due to the heavy nature of the flower, it is best grown with some shelter from strong winds, by growing it through other wall-trained shrubs or up into the base of shrubs growing at the bottom of archways or pergolas.

Even after a severe winter, when all top growth may be killed to soil level, it will rebloom with the fully double spiky flowers.

Can be grown successfully in a container in a sheltered part of the garden.

Launched at the famous Chelsea Flower Show.
