Clematis Avant Garde, also known as the ‘Dahlia Sitting on a Rose’, is a rapid and vigorous climber. It is a hardy plant that scrambles through roses, small shrubs and trees with its beautiful maroon flowers blooming out through the wild foliage. Plant this queen of flowering vines in a container pot or next to walls to cover them.
Believe it, Clematis Avant Garde is famous for its intentions to climb and vine, they are wild and will quickly takeover nearby shrubs. This feature comes with great benefits, for it is just delightful to see striking colours of its flowers in your garden fences.
The flowers hold a central crown of pink-lavender petals that nest in the midst of dark velvet red petals. In the innermost part of the flower lie beautiful golden-yellow dome shaped anthers that produce an attractive contrast around.
This Clematis can easily reach a height of 10 feet in short time! It needs sun to part shade and a soil that is moist, well-drained and normal-loamy in nature.
To prune Clematis Avant Garde, cut stems down to 15cm (0.5 feet) above the soil level. Mulch with well-rotted manure or compost around its base to keep the roots cool.
There is so much you can do with these aggressive climbing vines, just to have a glimpse of their lovely maroon flowers in your garden.
