  • Soil: fertile, well-drained, neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast growing
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Bred by Raymond Evison and previewed at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2008, this glorious clematis has only recently become available on the market - and we think it will quickly become a top-seller. The large flowers are a rich plum red, (which is very rare in the Clematis world), and they have a wispy boss of creamy-yellow stamens at their centre. They first appear in a profuse burst of colour in late spring or early summer, but then will continue to flower intermittently throughout the rest of the summer and into early autumn. They look spectacular when teamed with deep purple, but the flower colour of 'Rebecca' can be variable. It tends to open a velvety crimson before fading to a brighter red, but the amount of sun the plant gets will also play a part, as the flowers tend to be a brighter red when grown in full sun (or during brighter weather).

  • Garden care: Remove dead and damaged stems before growth begins in early spring, cutting all remaining stems back to where strong buds are visible. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.

When it arrived the plant was healthy. It was planted in a wooden planter on our upper patio. It quickly developed Clematias wilt and after repeatedly cutting it back each time, when it got to a certain height, the wilt would start again. I have experienced clematis wilt on some of my other clematis before and have always managed to clear it up not this time.

Beautiful clematis!

The clematis survived everything this winter threw at it. It remained in flower through the autumn and provided some welcome colour at a drab time of year. The plan is to train it over an archway at the entrance to the back garden.

I bought this plant for my daughter's birthday as her name is Rebecca. I couldn't find one in my local garden centre. It is doing very well and she is very pleased with it.

Great plant and still in flower in October

Planted on a north-facing fence, has been covered in flower in both early summer and again in autumn with no hassle or special treatment - I just left it. Still in flower in first week of October with more buds yet to open. Looking great next to the autumn berries and rose hips. Is more plummy red than the bright shown but that was expected given it's not planted in sun, and I love the deeper red. Leaves died back a bit in mid summer so perhaps best planted with something else to scramble around rather than by itself so it can hide away when building up for the second flush of flowers.

Not a true Red as I expected.

I have to say slightly disappointed upon taking delivery this week. I was expecting a bigger plant for the price I paid. Also disappointed with the colour as I was expecting this to be a true red but like another reviewer, it is more plum than red.

More velvety plum than red.

I've grown Clematis 'Rebecca' for two years in a partially shaded sheltered westerly spot. The leaves are a deep rich plum colour which look striking above Kotah black lime stone paving and the lime green leaves of a nearby Choisya ternata 'Sundance'. A mulch of manure in spring followed by occasional liquid seaweed feeds of Maxicrop during the summer seems to keep it very happy.
