Genus:  Clematis
'Ernest Markham' is a vigorous, late-flowering climber with abundant small flowers in summer. Blossoms are rich magenta, 4 inches across, with blunt-tipped sepals and light chocolate anthers.
Care:  Provide full sun and fertile, well-drained, acidic soil with abundant organic matter.  The heat may cause some of the leaves to turn brown. Plant with the top of the root ball 3 to 5 inches below the surface and provide strong support.
Propagation:  Root softwood cuttings in spring or semi-ripe cuttings in early summer.
Problems:  Wilt, powdery mildew, rust, fungal spots, and stem cankers are common. Scale insects, whiteflies, earwigs, and aphids can occur.
