Cultivation Information

Clematis 'Avalanche' produces clusters of glorious pure white 'male' flowers with yellow stamens. They are the largest blooms in this evergreen group of clematis. We recommend growing in a container unless the soil is free-draining or the drainage is very carefully improved.
Also known as x cartmanii 'Avalanche' and 'Blaaval'

Cultivation Advice
These clematis originate from species native to New Zealand and have attractive evergreen foliage. They are well suited to growing in free-draining soil or pots with free draining or alpine compost and may prefer the more sheltered places in your garden.  'Early Sensation' produces amazing seed-heads when grown alongside 'Joe'. These clematis are dioecious (producing either male or female flowers).

We recommend that you grow all the clematis in this group in free-draining soil or containers for the smaller cultivars and give them the benefit of a sheltered aspect.  The compost for containers should ideally be very free draining and mixing in a few handfuls of horticultural grit or perlite will help.  Make sure the pot can drain freely and reduce watering in the autumn because they over-winter better if slightly dry, rather than too wet. Perhaps consider planting 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

I have bought so many clematis from Thorncroft and none of them have disappointed me. As usual, a large healthy plant with lots of flower buds already. Great advice about hardening off and planting /pruning. This is going over an arch, Iím sure itíll look amazing. See you at Malvern to buy more!
