Clematis Plants


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.
