Collectors Corner

Here we have a list of clematis that are possibly rare or hard to find, maybe they are something we have only a few or are popular with plant collectors.
This is the place to find those clematis and climbers that will be something different to the 'run of the mill' varieties.
Some of these plants will require more particular care and attention but are worth the extra effort.
