Clematis Montana


I bought this Clematis from Morrisons in the summer and it said it was a Montana which I just assumed would be light pink.

does anyone know what variety this actually is- pic taken today so very late flowering?

    Definately not a Montana the "Julia Correvon" looks about right .

    I think it looks gorgeous ... and I love C. viticellas ...... so easy to look after ... chop them down to about 18" in the spring, give them some clematis food and stand well back image

    I have two Montanas scrambling over the remains of the Leyandii . ( It's a very long back fence.) and I have also planted a Rambling  Rector. May the best plant win .

    J. Correvon is a very popular clematis - and rightly so. It's a great colour.

    If you have room, a montana would compliment it, as long as you can train it into a support properly and give it the room required. It would be  a shame if it overshadowed J.C. 

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

  • Julia Correvon is one of the very best, a lucky mistake actually--montana is an amazing plant, but it gets very big indeed. Madame J will flower for a long time over late summer.
