White flowers with purple backed petals - compact at around 45cm in height. Prefers a moist but well drained soil in sun or part shade. With more hybrida in the cross, this cultivar is more reliable than Wild Swan.

Not so Climbing Clematis!

New range of patio Clematis a real hit at How Green Nursery! Last year we trialled a collection of low growing Clematis and they proved a real hit! So much so, we have increased our range and numbers and now they have started to flower, they are flying out the nursery! A breeding programme started in Guernsey back in the mid 1990’s to produce a compact Clematis. There are many advantages of a smaller plant. They are ideal for the small courtyard, patio or balcony. Some Clematis varieties can grow very vigorously and need a lot of time to manage.
