Description

Tolerates partial shade better than most clematis

Flowers are whimsical pale pink and exceptionally large 6 to 8 inches across!

Brighten your garden with a worldwide favorite. 'Nelly Moser' boasts pale pink petals set off by central red bars on huge 6- to 8-inch blooms that arise not once but twice a season. For unexcelled flower power and good shade tolerance, you must try this heirloom beauty!

Huge 6- to 8-inch single flowers appear most heavily in early summer, then more modestly in early fall. The final flush of bloom is followed by handsome seed heads, which keep this climber interesting until winter.

'Nelly Moser' was introduced in 1897, became an instant favorite, and has never looked back. This climber reaches 6 to 10 feet long and wide (generally larger in the garden than in containers), and demonstrates much better tolerance of shade than most Clematis. In fact, the richest pink tones arise in a bit of shade!

This is a Group II Clematis for pruning purposes. Give it a season or two to find its feet in your garden or container, and then watch it leap up! Very long-lived. Zones 4-8.
