Clematis Montana 'Marjorie'

Clematis Montana 'Marjorie' has spectacular double and semi-double flowers up to 7cm in diameter, appearing in May and June. The petals are a coppery-salmon pink with a cream stripe, distinctively pointed at their tips. As they mature, the colours deepen to shades of orange.

Attractive bronzed foliage contrasts beautifully with the blooms to give a spectacular show year on year. Marjorie is exceptionally disease resistant and very hardy.

Great for your garden:

Marjorie will perform best with her roots in deep, moist soil. She is a vigorous climber, quickly smothering a wall or pergola with attractive bronze foliage, and prefers full sun, but will tolerate part shade in a south or south-westerly aspect.
Give her a strong supporting structure to climb up or tree to ramble through and enjoy the show each spring.


  • Flower colour: Cream with salmon pink
  • Flower shape: Double and semi-double with noticeably spiked petals
  • Fragrance: Unscented
  • Repeating: Can have a second flush later in the year as the plant ages
  • Approximate flowering season: May - June
  • Final height and spread: 8m x 2m
  • Pruning group: 1

Look out for:

Aphids and caterpillars are fond of the young shoots

All clematis can be affected by Clematis slime flux, a bacterial infection of damaged tissue that can kill large specimens almost overnight. Can be pruned out if spotted early.

Blooms can develop a greenish tint in shade/cold weather.

Planting and Care Instructions

How to grow Clematis Montana 'Marjorie':

Clematis Montana 'Marjorie' can be grown easily following the Clematis planting notes.

  • Give it a deep, moist spot to bury its roots into.
  • Likes a south or south-westerly aspect, full sun or part shade.
  • The soil needs to be well drained (it won't tolerate water logging).
  • Needs a strong supporting structure - the plant can become very heavy with age if left unpruned.
  • Final height of 8m makes it well suited to scrambling through large trees or covering long walls/fences.
  • Pruning group 1 - no regular pruning required. If you want to reduce their size, prune immediately after flowering.
  • All clematis like a mulch of well-rotted manure or garden compost in late spring - they are hungry plants.
