Early Large Flowered, Group 2.
Pink. 6 to 8 petals. Average diameter 8". Large, single bloom form. Late spring to early summer, late summer to early autumn.
Height of 6' to 8' (185 to 245 cm).
USDA zone 4b through 9b. Plant in partial shade to prevent fading of bloom color. Suitable for growing in a container. This plant blooms twice. It blooms on the previous year's growth, so resist the urge to prune it in early spring. However, if you garden in a place with cold winters, Mother Nature will more than likely prune the plant for you. It will bloom a second time on new growth.

In French, the word souvenir means "in remembrance of..." In this case, the breeder name this clematis in memory of his son who was killed in the First World War.
