Flowers are a beautiful thing, no doubt, and Clematis 'Jeanne's Pink' certainly delivers on those. But as we all know, flowers are transitory and sometimes only last a day or a week or so. C. 'Jeanne's Pink' is one of those perennials that rewards for a long time, not with just flowers, but with with stunning seed heads.
C. 'Jeanne's Pink' opens in early to late summer with large soft pinkish blooms that are 6-8" across with delicate overlapping sepals. Flowers can be semi-double. Over time, the flowers will fade to a blush white. Not so long after this, comes the special prize of this Clematis, the seed head. The one pictured below has held on tight for nearly a year and brings a smile to my face daily!
C. 'Jeanne's Pink' grows 6-8 feet tall, making it very suitable for use in a container or up close in the border. She can take full to part sun. - Liane Schleifer
