Outstanding Qualities

‘Broughton Star' is an unusual double-flower selection of Clematis montana with beautiful two-toned flowers. The 2 ½ inch flowers are born in abundance in mid-spring. The outer layer of petal-like sepals are pale purple-pink and the ruffle of inner sepals are a deeper purple-red. The heart of the bloom holds a tuft of yellow stamens. When this deciduous vine is in flower it becomes a sheet of pink.

Culture Notes
This vigorous clematis is a large grower and requires plenty of space to spread. It will grow best in light to open shade or full sun if the location is not a hot spot. Provide a site with rich well-drained soil where it can be occasionally watered during dry weather. Plant vines that are well rooted and at least two years old. In our climate planting too deeply can smother the roots. Set young plants at the same depth they were in their nursery pots. Clematis are heavy feeders and appreciate fertilizing in spring. This clematis blooms on one year old stems so prune lightly in late winter, only removing congested or tangled growth or if heavy pruning is required do it immediately after flowering in spring.
