Clematis viticella Etoile Violette is one of the most historic, long-standing, and much-loved clematis ever grown. This clematis was bred in 1885 and remains as popular as ever with gardeners - and it is easy to see why. The regal looking purple violet flowers, festoon this clematis throughout the late summer. The depth of the colour is enhanced by the cream centre. The flowers open to be 10cm wide, and as there are so many blooms, the fresh green foliage is largely obscured. Clematis viticella Etoile Violette has been grown successfully in gardens for over 100 years, so if you want a proven thoroughbred with an impeccable lineage, then this must be the climber for you.Clematis viticella Etoile Violette has received the Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society for outstanding garden performance. Clematis viticella Etoile Violette prefers to be grown in moist, well-drained soil in sun or part shade, with its roots in the shade. Reaching an approximate height of 5m, she is fully hardy requiring no winter protection.
