Rouge Cardinal is a clematis with the deepest shade of crimson red colour. The flowers are velvety, with a slightly lighter band across the sepals. This variety prefers full sun.

It belongs to Group 3 clematis, flowering in mid- and late summer. Flowers appear on new growths. Cut back all the previous year's stems to a pair of strong buds, 15-20 cm above soil level, before growth begins in early spring.

Clematis likes deep, fertile, moist but well-drained soil that remains cool. You can grow a plant below clematis that will provide shade for its roots. Add garden compost in late winter and mulch it well. Fully hardy to min. -34°C (USDA zone 4).
