Dark and sumptuous flowers and a great companion.
'Romantika' is just one of many superb clematis bred by Uno Kivistik of Estonia. Raised in 1983 as a seedling it was not available to many gardeners until the 'Iron Curtain' was lifted in 1989 and trade with the Eastern European nations became easier.
'Romantika' is classed as a Jackmanii clematis and displays many of the Jackmanii characteristics, of strong growth and fast growth rate, very dark flower colour and long flowering season.
In our experience 'Romantika' is best grown as a companion plant a habitat in which it thrives. Our plant at Thorncroft grew through a philadelphus (Mock Orange) and looked superb from early summer to autumn.
