Clematis montana 'Broughton Star' is popular fast-growing and free-flowering climber, which flowers in May and June.
While most varieties of this species have single flowers, 'Broughton Star' is notable for its semi-double flowers, which are a dusky pink with a darker vein in each petal.
Given adequate support it is ideal for covering unsightly buildings, wall, and fences.
Broughton Star was raised and named by Mr and Mrs Denny of Broughton, near Preston. They set out to take the double-flowering characteristics of 'Mayleen' and introduce the intense pink colour of Clematis montana 'Picton's Variety'.
