Also known as montana var. rubens 'Freda'.
Awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit
The Montana's are ideal for softening the outline of buildings, covering fences and walls, but be aware some can be very vigorous! Any of these will look fabulous scrambling up into large mature trees as they would in the wild.
'Freda' is one 'lady-like' montana, and 'Primrose Star', 'Sunrise' and 'Marjorie' are generally more manageable.
The Montana prefer a free draining soil condition and can be susceptible to 'wetting off' during the winter if they are kept too wet. If required, pruning should be carried out immediately flowering has finished. Avoid them becoming too excessively wet during their first autumn and winter in the ground or perhaps plant in the spring.
