Chelsea Flower Show 2013: Clematis ‘Samaritan Jo’

By Plantedd @Plantedd

Raymond Evison Clematis is introducing this striking new clematis, Clematis ‘Samaritan Jo’, at the Chelsea Flower Show next month.

Clematis Samaritan Jo

This is a compact clematis with a long flowering season, running from late spring to late autumn. The flowers are a silvery white with a tinge of pink and there’s a line of purple at the edges, looking like the sepals have been dipped into a bowl of crushed blackcurrants. Raymond Evison Clematis suggest that it looks especially good “with gray foliaged plants and pastel-coloured flowers in the mixed border or with wall-trained shrubs and roses on archways or pergolas”. Any aspect except full sun. Prune hard in spring.

Height: 4-5ft. Flower size: 10-12cm.
