Clematis 'Violet Elizabeth'

Large mauve-pink double flowers with yellow anthers in May-June and later in September. Raised by Walter Pennell from seed set in 1962 and sown in 1963, named in 1974 after Violet Smith, a Pennell office employee.

Several authorities say that 'Violet Elizabeth' flowers single on new wood in the autumn. Two regular contributors to this site assure us that it flowers double at both times of year - something borne out by the dated photograph supplied by Debbie Fischer.
