Clematis Nelly Moser

Large pale mauve/pink flowers with a deep purple-pink stripe are produced during May and June.

Clematis 'Nelly Moser' was raised by Moser of Versailles, France.

How to grow

This Clematis is best planted out of full sun to help prevent the flowers from fading.

This non-evergreen climber can be grown against a trellis, garden fence, wall, arches, pillars, pergolas, clambering over tree stumps and through large shrubs or planted in a container trained up bamboo canes or an obelisk.
