The light lemon-yellow double nodding bell-shaped flowers open from pale lime green buds. Flowers whiten with age. Has a delicate grapefruit scent.
This includes the alpina, chisanensis, koreana, macropetala and their hybrids, i.e. spring flowering cultivars with nodding bell-like flowers and are all very hardy.
They do not need the 'rich' growing conditions or deep planting that the large flowered cultivars prefer. Because they have very fine root systems they will not thrive in soil which is prone to water-logging and they will actually be happier in poorer soils with very free draining conditions. If required, prune immediately after main flowering. Avoid them becoming too excessively wet during their first autumn and winter in the ground or perhaps plant in the spring.

Wow the scent
I bought all 5 of the new clematis from Dr Marczyński.
They all have a super fragrance of the grapefruit and they performed very well this year up to 2 meters already and flower for the last 8 weeks.
Now I have to do the first prune and make them bushier from the base of the plant.
Nice packaging as well.

Beautiful flower and scent
I ordered this a couple of weeks ago and it has just come into flower - it is quite beautiful. The scent reminds me a little of mimosa and the bloom is pale and delicate . I ordered 2 clematis and the ordering process, packaging and delivery were all excellent as were the clematis plants themselves. I particularly liked the way I was kept up to date about despatch and delivery by text. The speed of despatch and customer service were both very impressive .

I have just made my first order for clematis from Thorncroft Clematis and was very impressed with speed and efficiency of the service. I knew just when to expect my order to be delivered.
They were very well packaged and in excellent condition. As this is dormant at the moment there was extra labelling to ensure that
proper care is carried out.

Can't fault the delivery of my new plants which arrived today. They look superb. Looking forward to getting them in their new spots in the garden and enjoying them.
