Anyone have a vigorous \"Rebecca\"?

(Zone 4b)

There are few if any clematis that has such a bright red flower like "Rebecca".

I tried it once and it never thrived and eventually died out.

I would love to hear some success stories with this particular variety as I am considering giving it another go.

I have Ernest Markham. I'm surprised how "red" it is. It's a blue-red, but red. Maybe, I should say Hot pink, but mine is really redder than hot pink.
I recently bought Cardinal Wyzinski. It looks pretty red from pictures. I just purchased it this year, so no blooms.

Thanks 'birder' for the post. I forgot to mention that the red flowered clematis I will purchase will be placed under an obelisk and so it would be best that it be somewhat compact ie 6 feet or less. I believe "Rebecca" is such a clematis whereas EM and CW are more vigorous climbers?

Hi I have none of these, but "red" Clematis suitable for containers, according to my old book, include:
Allanah
Cardinal Wyszynski
Madame Edouard Andre
Niobe
Rouge cardinal
C. viticella Madame Julia Correvon

Perhaps you should look at Rouge Cardinal, just for the name!

I am surprised with this one as it grows quite large!
