This compact and free-flowering clematis has magenta blooms with brighter red bars. It is ideal for the deck, patio, outdoor dining area and outstanding when grown in a hanging basket. It produces its first flowers on short stems. As these are flowering, it is already producing trailing stems which provide more flowers. Once it has finished its first flowering, it may be pruned back to 6" and it will regrow and flower again if kept well-watered and fed.
