Patricia Ann Fretwell Clematis
Double Flowers, Double Colors, Double Blooming!
Clematis Patricia Ann Fretwell, Clematis 'B.F. Parfar', is the first double flowering red and pink clematis!
The outer tepals are reddish pink, fading to pale pink at the edges, the inner tepals are palest pink with a narrow deep pink stripe. The stamens are creamy-white.
The double flowers are on the old wood in May and June followed by single flowers on the new growth in September.
Clematis Patricia Ann Fretwell needs a supporting structure to grow properly. Clematis is easy to grow in a rich, porous, alkaline soil with plenty of room for the roots to spread.
Best performance is when the tops are in full sunlight and the roots are shaded, so apply generous mulch or a shallow-rooted ground cover near the base of the vine.
Very reliable performers once established; they take a season or two. Prune lightly above the new leaf buds in early spring and remove any dead or weak stems.
The effect with the outer tepals being two-tone makes the Clematis Patricia Ann Fretwell very special!
