Plant of The Moment

These Plant of The Moment features are articles I write for our newsletter sunscribers but I will include here on the Blog for you to see as well.

Wondrous Westerplatte

At Thorncroft Clematis we have stocked 'Westerplatte' from the very earliest opportunity and it has always proven to be a popular plant with the gardener.
It's natural hardiness and easy to grow nature are a part of this popularity for certain, but the long and consistent flowering period June to September (in the UK) is the most attractive attribute I'm sure.

Plant Of The Moment - Superb Clematis Samaritan Jo

Clematis Samaritan Jo™ is an exceptionally versatile garden plant. You can grow it in a patio container or in the garden, you can use it planted in multiples to create a large mass of colour and you can use it mixed with other plants as a companion to provide a contrast in colour and some 'wow' factor.

Abundant integrifolia 'Alba'

A reliable performer with an abundance of summer flowers.

The group of clematis known as integrifolia are cultivated forms of the species which has a herbaceous habit and originates from Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, The Balkans, South Russia and further into parts of Asia.
Thanks to these origins, it is a very hardy plant and can cope easily with the weather in the UK and Europe, making it an easy clematis to grow for both the clematis enthusiast and the beginner.

Plant of the Moment - Pretty little Piilu

Clematis 'Piilu' - Abundant, colourful, compact and hardy. What more do you need?
Clematis 'Piilu' was bred in the early 1980's in Estonia by the late Uno Kivistik an admired clematis grower and nurseryman.
'Piilu' was developed through an extensive breeding programme managed and run by the Kivistik family searching for very hardy varieties of clematis for the Baltic and Eastern European countries.

Ooh La La!! - Plant of the Moment

Clematis OOH LA LA™ 'Evipo041'

What she lacks in size she makes up for in quantity.
This is one of my favourite clematis and has been since I first set eyes on it back in 2008.
Ooh La La™ was bred by Mr Raymond Evison of Guernsey Clematis Nursery and was officially introduced in 2009 at Chelsea Flower Show.
