Pink Champagne™ clematis

Clematis 'Kakio'

Pink Champagne™ (‘Kakio’) is one of the earliest large-flowered clematis to bloom. As the name implies, this variety boasts bubbly, bright pink tepals with pale centers and bright yellow stamens. Pink Champagne™ is a strong climber with a fairly narrow expanse, meaning it works well in tight spaces. I grow this variety alongside my garden gate in a cramped space that is less than a foot wide. The stems shoot straight up, making a beautiful pink exclamation point. -Richard Hawke, Big blooming clematis, Fine Gardening issue #146

Noteworthy CharacteristicsA beautiful flower from a strong climber that snakes its way up a narrow expanse.

CarePrune Pink Champagne™ as you would any clematis from group 2.
