Raised in the 1930s, Clematis 'Abundance' is a late-flowering clematis bearing small, wine-red flowers which appear from mid-summer to early autumn.

It's 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 stems back to the lowest pair of buds in February or March. 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.
