I have never managed to grow a clematis in my life until now. The lovely Abilene was planted in a container last year and had one bloom. I fully expected the clematis to die during the awful winter weather but loads of buds started appearing and are now starting to flower. If the sunny weather continues I should have quite a display by the end of the month. Needless to say I am delighted. Success at last.
Charming Abilene is a dwarf Clematis, suitable for containers and smaller vertical spaces. The star-shaped flowers emerge a deep rosy-pink and soften to a baby pink with a prominent darker pink stripe.
