Awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit
Included in this group are those clematis commonly thought of as Viticella's, or viticella crosses. However we have taken the liberty to include some other cultivars in this group because their growth, habit and appearance is identical to that of the Viticella's. They include the likes of 'Blekitny Aniol', 'Polish Spirit' and 'Prince Charles' because of their similarities, and for ease of selection, we feel justified in placing them within this group.
They are all extremely hardy, very free flowering, their pruning is simple and they cannot be recommended highly enough. Especially useful for people new to growing clematis as they are extremely tolerant of what the gardener does to them! They all make excellent companions to grow with roses.

Excellent company to deal with.
This is my second order, and like the first one it could not be better. The packaging is great and the plant first class.

Great clematis, great supplier, exceptional value.
This clematis is exactly what I wanted for a shady spot and I am delighted with it. Thorncroft delivered it beautifully packed during the coronavirus lockdown. I was reorganising my garden this spring and 'Blue Angel' quickly established itself despite being in competition with the old rambler rose it was tasked to climb. In just a couple of months it grew about a metre and now in mid-July it has many flowers brightening up a gloomy spot as the rose has finished flowering. Great clematis, great supplier, exceptional value. Many thanks.

I have a very shady garden and Google brought me straight to this website when I asked for clematis for shade.
Bought 3 from a RHS show, got no help and they all died.
Called here and Carol was excellent telling me exactly what I needed to know and more!
Super service, super delivery and super plants.
All have flowered in the first year.
