Cultivation Information

Gently nodding flowers of primrose yellow are double and have a slight hint of pink on the top near the flower stem. This stunning clematis was awarded the RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year Award 2016. Amber will provide good strong flowering from late April until June and then give a second set of blooms in September. A strong bushy climber, Amber will cover an arch or trellis very well giving good coverage and making a good screen. Use in the border to fill an obelisk is also a nice way of showing off the flowers and providing a low maintenance feature mid-border.

Cultivation Advice.

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.

About Our Plants

At Thorncroft the quality of our clematis plants is very important to us and we will not compromise on keeping up the high standards our customers have come to expect.

We supply plants mostly in a 3 litre container, growing on a 3 foot (1 meter) bamboo cane support, occasionally a 2 litre pot is sufficient to ensure a quality plant is produced.  Your clematis can not always be delivered in full flower, however we will aim to send you the most advanced plant for you so that you get the best display possible in the first year of our plants being in your garden.

Chelsea Chop - Also from time to time we will need to prune plants back to keep them tidy on their cane. While every effort is made to only supply plants in full leaf we may on occasions send plants that have been recently pruned or had leaves removed and will include notes to explain why this has been done.  It's known as the 'Chelsea Chop' and is commonly seen in late May and June.

Please keep in mind that some of the more specialist clematis have different habits, so these standards can vary depending on the type you are buying but it gives you a good guide on what to expect. 

From the very outset, the Thorncroft philosophy is to provide a clematis which will thrive for the customer in their garden but also to provide the expert knowledge that we have gained over the years to help advise you which clematis are the best.

We have been sending plants by mail order to customers all over the world and have build up a good knowledge of which plants perform best in various parts of the globe. We also value your experience and if would like to tell us about which clematis you grow in your country, please do, it will allow us to continue learning

Clematis Amber
05 February 2022  | 

I saw this clematis at Chelsea Flower Show some time back and fell in love with it.
It arrived PERFECTLY PACKAGED. The plant was trimmed off tendrils
and carefully enclosed pot in plastic bag so no soil spilt in transit.
I have bought this particular clematis twice from another ‰Û÷well known clematis breeder‰Ûª but on both occasions it had ‰Û÷died‰Ûª and their Customer services were unhelpful. It wasn‰Ûªt as tall and sturdy as Thorncroft.
I will be planting it this week. The planting instructions are clear. Thanks you. Will definitely be buying from you again.

I have bought other clematis from various growers and can say, without doubt, that Thorncroft are the best in terms of sending out a healthy, strong looking plant. Good clear instructions on how to ensure this remains the case once planted.
