  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained, neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May and June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Beautiful, bright cherry-pink flowers in May and June amid purple-flushed, mid-green leaves. This award-winning form of montana clematis is ideal for covering a wall or fence in a north-facing site. A less vigorous relation of Clematis montana 'Pink Perfection', it's perfect for small gardens.

  • Garden care: No routine pruning is necessary. If the spread of the plant needs to be restricted prune immediately after flowering, cutting back overlong shoots to healthy buds. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.

    Comments about Crocus Clematis 'Freda':

    We planted this (two years ago) against a North facing wall. After it had flowered the first year I cut all shoots back to about 36 inches from the base, and in the past year it has produced lots of new shoots and
    scrambled up a 10 foot trellis. All I needed to do was tie in the shoots to prevent wind damage. It is now covered from top to bottom in flowers and very healthy foliage. A really lovely plant.

      The Clematis Freda and other bought are doing very well and thriving in my delightful garden together on a large trellis. I am looking forward to Spring when I know they will give a good show.

          Comments about Clematis 'Freda':

          Deep pink, strong growing, leaves also purple tinge, should be a good contrast to paler colours.
          No less vigorous than similar clematis, may need keeping in check.

              Hello Brenda, It is possible to grow this in a large pot - the bigger the better really but at least 50 x 50cm - as long as you make sure it is kept well fed and watered. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor
