Clematis Nelly Moser

From Malvern Spring Show 2012 - £3.00

Languinosa Group clematis - Pruning Group 2 or B Light Pruning or Tidying up.

The flowers have a darker bar down each petal, and the colouring makes them a good choice to team with climbing roses over an arch or on a wall. This variety does not flower continuously all summer, but has two bursts of bloom, first in late spring and early summer, and again in late summer - early autumn. To prune, remove any dead or weak stems in late winter or early spring and cut remaining stems back to the highest pair of strong-growing buds. To encourage blooms to cover the whole plant, train the stems so that they are evenly spaced on their support. As new growth appears in mid-spring, train this to fill any gaps. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
