Dainty bell-shaped flowers are a dull claret colour inside with a cream reverse and have cream anthers. The plant was discovered as a sport of 'Freckles' in 1995 by Merv Jerard of Lansdowne Valley, Christchurch, New Zealand.
These winter flowering clematis produce masses of nodding bell-like flowers. Whilst the foliage is classed as EVERGREEN it looks at its best in autumn, winter and spring, they can have a natural dormant period in summer, when the leaves sometimes go brown. The Cirrhosa Group require a sunny, free draining situation that is sheltered from the worst of the cold winds. If required, prune immediately after flowering. IMPORTANT! While in a dormant state during summer they do not want frequent watering because this can cause damage to the root, they are used to being dry during the summer.
