Information

The bright lemon-yellow nodding flowers open out flat and have very pointed tepals with swept back tips, followed by silky seed-heads. Can be grown in a patio container if provided with a free draining soil.

Also known as tangutica Helios.

Cultivation Advice
The tangutica clematis are extremely useful in the garden, providing colour and interest from mid-summer through to late autumn, with most producing excellent seed-heads for added interest in the winter months.  They cope well with hot, sunny situations and are drought tolerant, even thriving in poorer conditions where you would think they would struggle. They will not tolerate very heavy clay soils that sit waterlogged, nor any over-watering.  Very easy to grow and low maintenance with simple pruning. Avoid them becoming too excessively wet during their first autumn and winter in the ground or perhaps plant in the spring.

First class service

I am delighted with the customer service, I received a very fast and positive response to an enquiry. The clematis arrived when specified, well packed and a very healthy plant. I would certainly buy plants from Thorncroft in the future.
