Viennetta Clematis Plants
Garland Patio Collection
Clematis Viennetta, Garland Patio Collection. 3 Litre Pot
Wonderfully complex double flowers that from a bit of distance almost look like a passion flower. This clematis has a reputation for being quite variable and sometimes reverting to its parental forms either fully or partially, which is true, but not a problem in our book because all the versions are fascinating in their own way. The outer ring of sepals can be green or white, and the inner rosette is mostly purple-pink with a variable amount of green in the centre.
Blooms June to September. A mid-sized climber, ideal for most sunny patios. To 3m
Delivery season: Clematis are delivered in pots year round, when in stock. It is usually best not to plant out pot grown plants in winter, but to keep them until Spring, because they will establish faster in warm soil and give you better first year growth.

Part of the Garland collection by Raymond Evison and Poulsen Nursery, which are low climbers, great for pots and patios. Introduced in 2002.
Viennetta ice cream cake was invented in 1982 in Gloucester by Kevin Hillman, Ian Butcher, and Gordon Carrick for Wall's. In 2007, a 22.7 metre long Viennetta took the world record for longest ice cream. Texans were having none of that, so in 2018 four thousand people produced an ice cream sundae over 1,386 metres long at the Spirit of Texas Festival: a tad over 61 times longer.
