Clematis 'Guernsey Cream' (Large Plant)

Old Man's Beard

Clematis 'Guernsey Cream' is known and loved for its large creamy flowers measuring up to 12cm across, with their contrasting yellow stamens and a pale green stripe. This hardy perennial looks wonderful when climbing up a trellis or support, backed by dark green foliage for maximum visual effect. Flowering from May through to July, then again later in the summer, this is a climber that has an extended period of interest. It not only has dramatic cream flowers but once they fade there are fabulous golden/green starry seed heads which stay on the climber for many weeks. Clematis 'Guernsey Cream' looks at its best in a partially shaded site which prevents the flowers from fading. As the name suggests, it really does look good enough to eat! Height: 2.5m (8'2"). Spread: 1m (3' 3"). Pruning group: 2. More info

Clematis napaulensis

Clematis forrestii, Old Man's Beard

 Customer Review Rating
  • Rare and fascinating clematis
  • Winter flowering
  • Sweetly fragrant
Brighten up your winter garden with this rare and fascinating clematis. Originating from Nepal and parts of China, this stunning climber is quite remarkable, producing new foliage in autumn when most plants are losing their leaves. Large clusters of scented, white, bell-shaped flowers with rich purple filaments appear from November, filling your garden with colour and a sweet fragrance throughout the winter months. Clematis napaulensis is hardy when grown in a sheltered position and needs very little maintenance. Grow it through a deciduous shrub or alongside another climber to cover its bare stems in summer. Height: 3m (118") or more, depending on growing conditions and maturity. Spread: 1.5m (59"). Pruning group: 1. Supplied in a 7cm pot.
