Very old variety, already mentioned around 1600. Similar or even identical to 'Kermesina.' Suitable for trellises 2.5 – 4 m high. A rather simple variety, but due to the small flowers, a very robust clematis for the novice. It is in our viticella-assortment for this reason and for its colour. The slightly crinkled, velvety dark red flowers appear in abundance, flower size: 4 – 7 cm, flowering time from July to September, suitable for potting. Refer to the general information for guidance on location, pruning, suitable cable systems, etc..
