Clematis montana Mayleen

Clematis montana Mayleen

A charming, but very large, montana clematis, Clematis montana var. rubens Mayleen is a large, vigorous, deciduous climber, ideal for covering a sturdy shed or wall. The typical clematis leaves are tripartite, and bronze-tinted. The pretty flowers are single, a pale pink, paler at the edge of the four rounded petals, and appear in May and early June. Plant quite deeply (2-3 ½ ”/5-8cm)to encourage shoots from the base, and cover the base with other plants or a layer of gravel or stones to keep the roots cool. Needs minimal pruning, but can be sheared down if it gets out of hand. Clematis montana var. rubens Mayleen holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
