About Clematis 'Comtesse de Bouchaud':

Clematis 'Comtesse de Bouchaud' is a wonderful old free flowering variety with lovely large blue-pink flowers with distinctive pleated midribs and bright creamy yellow anthers.

Extremely free flowering, it will produce stunning blooms from June to September, providing your garden with valuable colour for months on end. It is fantastically versatile, and will thrive in a pot or in the garden.

Great for your garden:

'Comtesse de Bouchaud' is a really tough variety meaning it can be planted pretty much anywhere, although it will be happiest planted in a sheltered spot in partial shade.

It looks wonderful trained on wires on a wall, on a trellis or pergola where it can ramble through other companion plants such as climbing or rambling roses. It can also look lovely grown through shrubs. Being nice and compact it really lends itself to containers too, making it suitable for even the tiniest of gardens. It looks wonderful trained along a balcony.

This Clematis has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit due to its outstanding performance.

    Trivia:

    'Comtesse de Bouchaud' is one of the best loved and widely distributed of the large flowered Clematis, and has been for a century. It was bred in the early 1900Â’s by the renowned Clematis breeder Francisque Morel of Lyon.

    It is said that this Clematis was bred specifically for the mysterious Comtesse de Bouchaud herself, but unfortunately little is known about her identity.
