About 'Vyvyan Pennell' Clematis:

'Vyvyan Pennell' Clematis is a gorgeous showy variety producing its large impressive blooms in repeat flowerings from late spring through to autumn, with a break in midsummer.

The beautiful flowers are a soft lavender mauve, with paler midribs and deep golden stamens. The flowers start the season fully double, with the gorgeous ruffles of petals forming tight rosettes, and as the season progresses the flowers become single. If you like to find a companion for her, you can have a look at our full range of Clematis plants.

Great for your garden:

'Vyvyan Pennell' is a wonderful choice for training up frames such as pergolas and archways or against walls and trellises. It looks wonderful when paired with the Clematis's best friend, the climbing rose.

Being quite compact it is a good choice for containers, so it will squeeze into the tiniest of gardens! And it can look wonderful trained along a balcony. It can be grown in the border, either over a structure like an obelisk or using a host shrub as support.

Look out for:

Like all Clematis, 'Vyvyan Pennell' be affected by caterpillars, earwigs and aphids. Hand pick where possible, spray if infestations get heavy.

May be susceptible to Clematis wilt. Avoid through mulching and good deep root cultivation. Cut out any infected stems and destroy. Disinfect your tools afterwards.

Slime flux can be a problem. Damaged stems can be infected by the bacteria causing a foul smelling ooze from the wound. Affected stems are cut back to a healthy shoot. Infected material should be destroyed. Again, remember to disinfect your tools!

Trivia:

She was bred in the mid 1950's by Walter Pennell. Pennells is one of the oldest garden companies in the world, responsible for huge contributions to the world of plant breeding and to the development of the modern garden centre. She is one of the best known of the "Pennell introductions" and was the result of a cross between 'Daniel Deronda' and 'Beauty of Worcester'.
