More Information

LoreThis variety comes from the famed Clematis breeder Szcepan Marczynski from Poland and is named after his daughter.
Average Size at MaturityModerate growing; twining stems reach 6 to 9 ft. tall, with support.
Bloom TimeBlooms continuously, from mid to late summer.
Design IdeasClematis is perhaps the most beautiful of all vines for training onto vertical treillage. This ruby colored beauty belongs in courtyards and around outdoor living spaces where the blossoms can be enjoyed close up. They are gorgeous spiraled up wood posts and classical Greek style columns. These plants are also draped over walls and fences in a mass of color. In the Old World they can be found trained into the branches of long dead trees for natural arbor. They are also used as groundcovers to cascade down banks and slopes, and to dangle off retaining wall edges.
