Description

'Nelly Moser' Clematis Plants

'Nelly Moser' is one of the best known varieties of Clematis, and has been around for nearly a century!

Its beautiful blooms have up to eight pale rose petals, each with a striking deep carmine bar. Its large stamens are wine red fading to creamy yellow. The flowers are followed by decorative globular seedheads.

They bloom profusely on vigorous plants from early summer, with a much appreciated second flush in early autumn. Browse our other Clematis varieties here.

Great for your garden:

A good choice for a partially shaded north facing wall, as the colouring of the flowers tends to fade in full sun. It is perfect for covering a trellis, pergola or archway and makes a stunning companion for climbing roses.

Being a lover of part shade also means it's suitable for growing up through host trees or over large shrubs in the border.

It is such a great performer in the garden that the RHS has awarded it an Award of Garden Merit.

Look out for:

Clematis can be affected by caterpillars, earwigs and aphids. Hand pick where possible, spray if infestations get really bad.

May suffer from Clematis wilt. Avoid through mulching for healthy deep roots. Cut out any infected stems and destroy immediately. Disinfect your tools after use.

Slime flux can occasionally cause problems. Damaged stems can become infected, causing a bad smelling ooze from the affected area. Affected stems can be cut back to a healthy shoot, the infected matter destroyed.

Trivia:

'Nelly Moser' was bred by Marcel Moser in France in 1897, the Moser family being the most successful plant breeders in Europe at the time. It is one of the most popular clematis of all time, and one of the first to be bred with the contrasting coloured bars. The parents were Belisaire & Marcel Moser.
