Clematis montana 'Broughton Star'


Clematis montana 'Broughton Star' (Clematis montana (Clematis))

I love this Clematis - it always blooms slightly later than the other montanas.

Yes, it's a bit different, isn't it...

Beautiful, is it as vigorous as the singles? They've been absolutely fantastic in our neighbourhood, still looking great too. Is it a particularly good year for montana do you think? :-)

Yes, it has, Ba. They've all done well this year! No, 'Broughton Star' has been in 4 years now, and it doesn't seem to be as fast-growing as the other C. montanas. I don't mind at all. :-))

I planted this threeyears ago - there was a white one before - a HUGE one, right up into the damson tree, and it suddenly died...no idea why...I didn't think that montanas suffered from wilt?

Perhaps 'the animals' had something to do with it??

No - it was planted in a corner well away from where 'they' come and go. and it had a 'trunk' rather than stems! ....strangely, a seedling from it is draped over the stream wall - you can only see it from one side, but it looks great! I do get a lot of montana seedlings.

Hi, is this C montana "Freda" as I have been looking all over for it having once seen it in a garden centre ages ago?

No probs, Rose. This is a beauty - if you can find it, I'd recommend it highly. :-))

Agree with you Spritzhenry, I've got this one and its a beauty. It is mingled in with my other montana rubens and is a darker pink . I have just passed one over to my neighbour which rooted itself and am now having a go at pegging some down.

Great to find someone else who grows it. Good luck with layering yours. :-)
