Information
The charming dusky mauve-pink flowers have a deeper half-bar when first open. She pales to a delicate pearly-pink as her blooms mature. Introduced by Fisks Clematis Nursery in 1969 clematis 'Margaret Hunt' is one of our most popular summer flowering clematis.

Cultivation Advice.

These 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.There is no need to deadhead these clematis, however if they appear to have finished flowering earlier than you expected, there is no harm in giving them a light trim to encourage new growth and a secondary flowering late in the autumn.

strong grower and useful colour

starts early and is still going weeks after the other large flowered hybrids have gone over, subtle colour that blends well, flower petals slightly too gappy, but an improvement on hagley hybrid.
