This incredible new clematis bred by Wim Snoeijer in The Netherlands is quite unique and will certainly attract those who seek something a little different to plant in their gardens. The rich abundance of these eye-catching spiky multi-layered magenta flowers is a sight to behold.
Included in this group are those clematis commonly thought of as Viticella's, or viticella crosses. However we have taken the liberty to include some other cultivars in this group because their growth, habit and appearance is identical to that of the Viticella's. They include the likes of 'Blekitny Aniol', 'Polish Spirit' and 'Prince Charles' because of their similarities, and for ease of selection, we feel justified in placing them within this group.
They are all extremely hardy, very free flowering, their pruning is simple and they cannot be recommended highly enough. Especially useful for people new to growing clematis as they are extremely tolerant of what the gardener does to them! They all make excellent companions to grow with roses.

Superb unusual clematis
Small flowered red viticella type. Seems to have settled in well. Flowers are a bit like mini catherine wheel firework spirals

Dainty and Prolific
In all my years gardening I can honestly say that this is one of the best clematis I have ever grown.
It arrived in the usual manner from Thorncroft (Perfect timing, immaculate condition etc. don't buy elsewhere after buying here you will only be disappointed) I planted in my typical manner for clematis and expected to see it develope during the year.
I was not prepared for how quickly it would establish into a strong, bushy plant and how long it would flower for.
It arrived in April - flowered from early July and is still going now in August!

I ordered Rosalyn in May this year and planted the lovely specimen that arrived in perfect condition up an obelisk in my new rose border. It has grown nicely and has flowered constantly with the most beautiful flowers. Would recommend to anyone. Thank you Thorncroft.
