Clematis 'Entel' is a free-flowering clematis, bearing medium-sized pale pink, wavy edged flowers from July to September. It's one of the Estonian Nursery Rhyme series of clematis, named after the 'Uhtsi, Kaaru, Kommerei' rhyme. The rhyme consists of non-existant words, and each clematis in the series is named after a word in the rhyme. 

Grow it up an obelisk in the border, or use it to cover a fence or wall. You could also train it to scramble through a shrub or small tree.

Being a summer-flowering clematis, Clematis 'Entel' is in Pruning Group 3. Simply cut stems back to the lowest pair of buds in February or March.
