Clematis Nelly Moser
This Clematis which belongs to the Languinosa group is probably the best known of all. The soft pink flowers have a darker bar down each petal, flowering in early Summer and again in early Autumn. Definitely worthy of a special position in partial shade.
My reason for having a preference for the varieties which require hard pruning is simply because, mostly all our Clematis are trained up trellis, arches and fencing. With the need to give these wooden structures a coat of preservative every two or three years this would not be possible otherwise.
Do bear in mind Nelly Moser is best trained against a wall for this very reason.
