Raymond Evison Clematis from Guernsey exhibits three new Clematis’ at the Chelsea Flower Show that will be held May 22-26 in London (UK). The nursery describes Clematis ‘Evipo098’ Sarah Elizabeth as a breakthrough as far as pink flowered clematis go. “The distinct, attractive pink of this 2018 introduction almost seems to glow. The mass of flowers appears from late Spring until late Autumn. It grows to 1-2/1-5m (4/5ft ) and its subtle colours make it good for a shaded or partially shaded area.”

Also new this year to the Raymond Evison catalogue is Clematis ‘Evipo079’ Nubia, part of the Boulevard Series. A deep red clematis which is according to Raymond Evison Clematis so free and long flowering that it will become a classic clematis of the future. “No interesting back-story, simply a great plant.”
Danish Clematis specialist Poulsen Roser already introduced Nubia to the market in 2013 and underscored that this cultivar should be easier to handle in the production than other varieties of clematis as it can be regulated with light and heat like all Boulevard varieties [read more].
About the Boulevard Collection Poulsen Roser said then: “This collection includes compact, medium-sized Clematis’ with repeat flowering from early spring to late summer. Boulevard Clematis’ can be placed indoors as flowering house plants before they are planted outdoors.”
