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.

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.

This is one of the most beautiful clematis I have in my garden on the pergola. It was delivered and planted April 2019. It was exceptionally well packed and a very healthy. It came with detailed planting instructions, which I followed to the letter. It is now almost 6 foot tall, almost to the top of pergola and has been covered from head to foot in the most glorious blooms since the end of May. I thoroughly recommend this plant and this grower. Buy with confidence and enjoy the experience, as I have.

This clematis is in its first year in my garden and its clothed a shaded north facing fence with beautiful blooms for weeks on end.
Its really pretty with frilled flowers, some double, and I highly recommend it.

Blooming just 2 weeks after planting
This clematis arrived professionally packed and was easy to plant even for a 100% beginner like me.
Started flowering just 2 weeks after planting and never stops!
I'm sure I will enjoy my garden with this plant for many more years to come.
