Clematis Guernsey Flute™ 

One of our longest flowering varieties.

The exquisite large star-shaped, pure white flowers some 12-14cm across, with red anthers are formed from May through to July, clothing the plant from base to tip. Reliably repeat flowers into September. With its compact habit and height of 90-120cm, Guernsey Flute would make a wonderful addition to a patio, in a container, or in the mid to front of a flower border, where it’s longevity of successive flowers can be fully appreciated.

This exceptional clematis has an unusual but endearing trait of holding, just open flower buds, for an extended period, almost like a champagne flute, hence the use of ’flute’ in its name. When flowers mature they open fully flat, with pointed sepals and of generous proportions. Possibly the most robust flower of any white form of large flowered hybrid clematis. 

The Guernsey part of the name is reference to the variety being one of the first varieties to come out of Raymond J Evison’s new breeding programme, at The Guernsey Clematis Nursery.

The modern clematis in the Raymond Evison range flower readily and will yield good results using relatively simple pruning techniques. In late winter/early Spring simply reduce all stems down to 6" (15cm) of soil level.
