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 x durandii (Large Plant)

Durand's Clematis, Old Man's Beard

Clematis x durandii is strikingly individual! The non clinging stems bear solitary indigo-blue flowers with golden yellow anthers from June to September. Each bloom has 4 - 6 narrow, slightly twisted and deeply furrowed sepals which give this cultivar its distinctive appearance. Unlike many varieties, Clematis x durandii does not climb, but will happily meander among borders, poking stems up between other plants. These stems can be easily staked for a particularly attractive effect. Alternatively, this versatile Clematis could be tied onto an obelisk or trellis. A resilient and easy to grow variety, which holds an RHS AGM for its superb garden performance. Height: 2m (6'). Spread: 1m (3') Pruning group: 3. More info
