Clematis x triternata 'Rubromarginata'

Plant details

Raised in 1862, this vigorous clematis has been given the Royal Horticultural Society's prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM) in recognition of its outstandning excellence. It produces clouds of hawthorn-scented white flowers with red edges from mid-summer to early autumn. As with all the late-flowering clematis, pruning is easy. Simply cut back the stems to a pair of strong buds 15cm to 20cm (6in to 8in) above ground level before growth begins in early spring. This pruning technique makes late-flowering clematis useful for training into shrubs, trees and climbing roses as the clematis growth is removed each spring and so never becomes too much of a burden on its supporting plant.

This has a lovely Almond scent and is a very strong grower. We have had this Clematis near to the rear entrance to the garage and it just throws out scent for a distance around and further.


Marzipan scent with smashing flower colour.
Sunny spot, preferably where you can enjoy the smell.
Cut back in early spring. Simple.
