An Evison/Poulsen cultivar introduced at the Chelsea 2005 Flower Show, this clematis is named after Raymond Evison’s youngest daughter: Franziska. Very free flowering, compact double clematis. Repeat flowering. An exceptional free and long-flowering compact cultivar, this double clematis far outperforms any other double clematis currently available . It produces the most beautifully-shaped double flowers ever, on both old and new growth. It has many flowers per stem and has good foliage. The blue-purple flowers are full and perfectly formed and follow a repeat flowering pattern lasting throughout the summer to early autumn. The 10-15cm (4-6 inches) flowers have mid-blue tepals and yellow anthers. It is ideal for growing in container for the smaller garden, but it also looks outstanding with variegated wall trained shrubs. It is suitable for cut flowers.
