It is difficult not to get excited about fabulous Clematis plants. Their big, bold, brightly coloured flowers, coupled with their versatile growth habits, make this one of the most popular plant groups of all time. There is no secret to their success. They are generally hardy and produce flowers in various colours, measuring up to 25cm in diameter. Browse through our selection of evergreen and winter-flowering Clematis, which are perfectly suited to UK growing conditions.
Several varieties will flourish in containers, making them suitable for even the smallest town garden where space is always at a premium. In the wild, you will find them clinging to other plants for support, which is a great method to adopt into the garden. They will be equally happy simply covering a wall supported by trellis, scrambling over obelisks in the border, or adding colour to pergolas and archways. For a vigorous climber try Clematis montana whilst all flowering Clematis associate well with climbing roses.
