One of the most spectacular Raymond Evison introductions yet, Diamantina™ stole the honors (and the admiring stares!) at the 2010 Chelsea Flower Show, and we are delighted to make it available to you here now. This is a double-flowered Clematis, with blooms up to 6 inches wide, that flowers very heavily in early season, then repeats more modestly in summer and fall. The flowers seem to last forever, and the plant is compact enough for containers. Need we say more?!

These sparkling blue blooms are very fully double, with a central pompon of lighter lilac (often striped) surrounded by layers and layers of rich plummy violet petals. To say that these 4- to 6-inch flowers are striking is an understatement -- they simply pop! And they remain fresh and vibrant for an astonishing 4 weeks, something few other Clematis can boast.

Diamantina™ is a compact climber, just 8 to 10 feet high and 3 to 4 feet wide in the garden, somewhat smaller in containers. It is a sport of 'Crystal Fountain,' and anyone familiar with that exciting Evison introduction will see the evolution of color and form in Diamantina.™ Both are part of Evison's Regal® Collection of double-flowered Clematis cultivars.

Whether you choose to grow this climber in the garden or a container, select a sunny spot and give it a season or two to find its feet. A splendid companion to roses, it is also a breathtaking addition to the mailbox, lamppost, or other natural vertical structure. Select only the best for your garden -- grow Diamantina™ this season!
