Clematis Carnaby - Large Pink flowered Clematis
'Carnaby' Clematis plants are compact, deciduous climbers. In late spring they produce a profusion of gorgeous pale rose flowers. The petals have lovely frilled margins and deep crimson bars, while the unusual central anthers are deep red.
This wonderful Clematis really spoils you, with another slightly lighter flush of flowers in late summer and early autumn. Being nice and compact they are perfect for growing in containers on a patio or balcony as well as in the garden.

Carnaby Clematis in your garden
Carnaby is a great choice for small gardens. As well as keeping nice and compact its repeat flowering nature gives you a lovely long season of interest. It can be planted in pretty much any position except deep shade but prefers a sheltered spot in partial shade where the roots can stay cool and moist. It looks stunning trained over a trellis or pergola, along wires on a wall or even rambling through other plants as a support.

Clematis are among our most beloved garden plants. They started life in the wilds of China and were first bought into gardens by the Japanese in the 17th Century. The trend quickly caught on and from there they found their way into European gardens, where an explosion of breeding took place, resulting in the fantastic variety on offer today!
