Clematis plants, commonly known as 'Old Man's Beard', have a multitude of uses in the garden. Large flowered clematis will quickly transform walls and fences during the summer. Grow evergreen clematis and winter flowering clematis varieties for colour and interest during the darkest months, or hide ugly outbuildings with the vigorous growth of Clematis montana. You can even find dwarf clematis for smaller gardens or trailing from patio pots.

Clematis cirrhosa var. purpurascens 'Freckles'
Old Man's BeardThis eye-catching evergreen clematis gives a much needed injection of colour to the winter garden, when few other plants dare to bloom. This is the earliest of the spring flowering clematis, with cup-shaped pink blooms freckled with maroon-red markings, to give this plant it's name. The delicate blooms are followed by attractive fluffy seedheads that stand proud of the glossy evergreen leaves. Clematis ‘Freckles' requires only minimal pruning and makes an excellent specimen for containers and borders. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 1.5m (5'). Pruning group: 1
