The Clematis Ernest Markham has dark red, magenta blooms that flower in July and range in height of 10-12’ and has a spread of 1-2’.

The red flowers are approximately 4-6” wide. The foliage is dark green and makes a great contrast with the flower color.

Clematis  Ernest Markham prefers full sun but will tolerate shade in the morning in a well-drained area. It is best to avoid heavy pruning on this perennial until it is fully established.

Clematis Ernest Markham needs a supporting structure to grow properly but will also grow over large shrubs.

The tops of Ernest Markham Clematis prefer full sun while their roots prefer a cool, shady area.

It is best to heavily mulch the root zone or plant a shallow rooted ground cover to provide this cool, shady area at the base of the plant.
