Regarded by many as one of the best red clematis ever produced, Clematis ‘Rebecca’ produces an abundance of large, velvety, deep vibrant red flowers, up to 5-7 in. across (12-18 cm), adorned with a wispy boss of creamy-yellow stamens at their center. The stamens are unique in having red connectives, a delicate touch from the breeder, Raymond Evison. The broad, overlapping petals have gently ruffled edges, and their velvet sheen lasts almost as long as the flower. Flowering comes in two waves: first in late spring or early summer, then in late summer and early fall. This large-flowered clematis is so prolific that the magnificent blooms nearly conceal the green foliage. Compact, it is ideal for containers and small gardens. Excellent when grown into small shrubs. [Gardenia]
