A gorgeous, evergreen Clematis with abundant, delicate white and green, bell shaped blooms (to 5cm) autumn to late winter/early spring. What’s more, the flowers are followed by handsome, silky seed heads. It has impressive dry tolerance.

Clematis ‘Wisley Cream’ has been awarded the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit for its ease of care and value in the garden. The evergreen foliage is dark green with a bronze blush in autumn.

It is pruning group 1, which is super easy to care for, they flower on old wood, so you just have to trim to tidy once they have finished flowering.

Hardy to frost and suitable for gardens or pots. Clematis ‘Wisley Cream’ is easy to grow, up trees, pergolas, fences or rambling through beds. Their flowers are pendent so you can enjoy them best from below. They will flower best in a spot where they can enjoy winter sunshine.

Clematis grow well where Roses grow well, and they are also excellent in combination. You can use similar colours for a lovely blend, or create some drama with bright shades. Clematis will also intermingle well with many other plants.

Clematis are a fabulous addition to the garden as they are fast growing and produce lots of flowers.

Plant your Clematis so their ‘head’ is in the sun and their ‘feet’ are in the shade. In other words, they like their root zone to be cool and protected while their tendrils enjoy the sunshine. In exposed positions this can be achieved with mulch and or by using other plants to shield the roots from the sun. The plant should be allowed to grow up into a sunny position.

Clematis can be trained to grow on a trellis, fence, through trees and shrubs, along pergolas or any where you like! They are so versatile, you can even use them as a ground cover.

To perform at their best, Clematis should be fertilised well. Use a Rose Fertiliser every three months or when they are actively growing.

Grow Clematis in humus rich, moist, well drained soil. They need good drainage or the roots will rot. Plant Clematis so they will receive around six hours sun a day and shield from the hot afternoon rays. You can even choose to grow your Clematis in pots.
