Colour theory: How to make magentas redder?
After searching the garden stores for the elusive Clematis Texensis Gravetye Beauty, I've given up (this year) and decided to make the most out of my Clematis Mme. Julia Correvon.
Does anyone know a bit about colour theory? How would one make a dark pink/purple clem. (the majority of "red" labelled clematis) more red? I am not asking how to alter the colour of the plant, simply how to make the flower colour appear redder than it actually is. Can anyone recommend another clematis, with similar bloom times, that might bring out the red hues of this plant? Would it be better to try a C. Niobe, what about a white clem., a yellow one?
Any suggestions are appreciated.
