Plant details

Raised in France in 1900, 'Madame Julia Correvon' is a classic clematis variety that was lost to cultivation until it was rediscovered by plantsman Christopher Lloyd. In recognition of its outstanding excellence, the Royal Horticultural Society has given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM). From mid-summer to early autumn, it is covered with rich red flowers are pale pink on their reverse. The plant's compact nature means that it is an excellent choice for container growing. It is a member of the viticella group of clematis and as such it shows good resistance to clematis wilt. As with all the late-flowering clematis, pruning is easy. Simply cut back the stems to a pair of strong buds 15-20cm (6-8in) above ground level before growth begins in early spring.
