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.

Clematis napaulensis

Clematis forrestii, Old Man's Beard

Originating from Nepal and parts of China, this rare and unusual clematis has a fascinating growth habit. Clematis napaulensis is cloaked in lush green foliage from autumn to early summer, before shedding its leaves in summer when most plants are in full growth. It's bell-shaped, winter blooms release a delicate perfume that hangs on the cool December air,that form interesting seed heads as spring approaches. This extraordinary, low maintenance Clematis needs little pruning, making it ideal for brightening the dull winter months. Grow it in a sheltered position through another deciduous climber to hide its bare stems in summer. Height: 3m (9') or more, depending on growing conditions and maturity. Spread: 1.5m (5'). Pruning group: 1. Supplied in 7cm pots.

This fabulous herbaceous Clematis has a self supporting, bush forming habit that is perfect for bulking up perennial borders with vigorous clumps of dense foliage.

This spectacular variety is best grown among tall perennials such as Lupins, Foxgloves, and Delphiniums and makes a superb gap filler for cottage garden planting schemes. Height: 90cm (35").
