Clematis Maidwell Hall


Clematis Maidwell Hall (Clematis macropetala (Clematis))

This is what Taylors say about this one........
amazingly tough varieties that can withstand temperatures down to -40, they grow in areas/places and countries that other clematis just cannot. They naturally grow up in the mountains hence the fact that they never need pruning ( or any looking after for that fact ) they thrive on neglect! The macropetala varieties flower from March to Mid May with hundreds of nodding flowers that are fully double, varying in length. Then they have fantastic seed heads for the rest of the season, that creates interest for some time after the flowers have gone. Clematis macropetala can be grown in any aspect and can also be grown in tubs/pots or planters if you wish ( so very versitile )
