Like a show stopper? Look no further!
'Haru Ichiban' is the most intense and striking flower that has all the 'Wow' factor any garden could ask for!
I am rather fond of this clematis because it was given to us by our late friend Masako Takeuchi of Japan. Both she and her late husband Hiroshi were very kind to my parents when they visited Japan and both are recognised as talented hybridisers of clematis. Hiroshi bred another of our favourites 'Gojogawa' itself a super garden plant.
Haru Ichiban's bright cerise pink blooms can be almost red when they first open and have a wonderful mauve mottling along the centre of each petal leading to anthers of vibrant cerise pink.

You will get two flower periods from 'Haru Ichiban', the first in May and June for about 3-4 weeks it's good to prune the dead heads to encourage the second flowering in mid August until the end of September. Flowers are about 4-6 inches across.
A strong plant but with modest height of approx 6-8 feet means it can grow well either in your garden or in a large patio pot.

Cultivation Advice.

Large flowered clematis prefer a good quality soil with high nutrient levels and a soil which is moist but free-draining. Improve planting holes with at least 2 forkfuls of well rotted manure or garden compost and if you don't have these use a 'Soil Improver' compost. The Improvement material added should be placed under the root of the plant not around it. This encourages the roots to grow downwards and remain deep and cool during summer. If your clematis flowers in May-June(late spring), cut the dead flower heads when they have finished to encourage a second set of flowers to be produced in the late summer and autumn. Be prepared to wait for a couple of years before they will be at their best - Our saying is - 1st year = Roots, 2nd year = Shoots, 3rd year = Flowers!
