Clematis, Harlow Carr™ Clematis

General Description

This Clematis viticella hybrid has lovely nodding deep violet-purple flowers that cover the vine late in the season. This cultivar was introduced by Poulsen Roser International and bred in the United Kingdom by Raymond J. Evison and Mogens Olesen.

Hybrid clematis is a hardy deciduous woody vine that climbs by twining stems. The vines are lined with green compound leaves that appear in spring. The sweet nodding flowers first appear in late summer and are followed by fluffy clusters of silvery seeds.

Plant this vine in sites with full sun and fertile, well-drained soil. It grows and flowers best if its roots remain cool under a vegetative layer or thick mulch. As with most clematis, this selection adds a vertical element to the garden and looks best when trained on a fence, trellis or pergola.

This is a Group 3 clematis, which means it bears flowers on the current year’s growth and can be hard pruned.
