Clematis Armandii Hendersonii Rubra is a perennial species of evergreen climber with masses of early flowering plae pink blooms that burst through in March to April. It is also known as Clematis Hendersonii Rubra. This evergreen clematis develops a thick vine with sturdy stems that will grow up to five metres in each direction. Evergreen trifoliate leaves grow along the length of its vine. These dark, evergreen leaves create a lovely foil for the flowers which are a deeper pink in bud, opening to a pale blush pink that doesn’t fade. The blooms are singular 5-6 cm beauties borne in huge profusion. The name ‘Rubra’ refers to its new growth, which is a redder shade than most Armandii cultivars. Clematis Armandii Hendersonii Rubra is a vigorous climber with a strong fragrance that attracts early pollinators and brings colour to the garden at a dull time of year.
How Hardy Is Clematis Armandii Hendersonii Rubra?
It is hardy in most of the UK if it is kept from water-logged conditions. This early flowering evergreen clematis fares best against a wall or fence in a sunny spot to make the most of early spring rays.

How To Care For Clematis Armandii Hendersonii Rubra
Clematis Hendersonii Rubra is a hardy clematis that requires little in terms of pruning. If you need to restrict its spread, prune back immediately after flowering. It fares best when it is planted away from cold, drying winds in a sunny spot, but it is tolerant and easy-to-grow in partial shade too. Clematis are hungry and thirsty plants, so it is worth regularly watering and feeding your Clematis Armandii Hendersonii Rubra. Any well-drained soil will support a clematis from the Armandii range, but in early spring, before the flowers appear, top dress the soil with well-rotten manure and keep the roots covered throughout the seasons. This ensures the best flowering display.
