Clematis Margaret Hunt

Clematis Margaret Hunt

A late-flowering, large-flowered, free-flowering clematis, Clematis Margaret Hunt is a fast-growing, deciduous, herbaceous perennial, self-clinging climber. Tripartite, typical clematis leaves are deep-green. Masses of large flowers, with six dusky mauve-pink petals, with darker margins and veins and with prominent red anthers on pale filaments, are borne from late summer to September; the flowers fade to pearly-pink. A Group 3 clematis, it is very easy to prune – simply cut it down to two fat buds about 6-8”/15-20cm above the ground in late winter or early spring; Group 3 clematis are rarely troubled by clematis wilt or other diseases. Clematis Margaret Hunt likes a cool, spacious root-run but its head in the sun; flag-stones or a rich spring mulch over the roots will keep soil cool and moist.
