Cultivation Information

This stunning new clematis looks to be a big hit with gardeners.  With it's deep royal-purple double blooms which stand out from the rich green foliage on long slender stems giving it a very exotic appearance. To create a stunning feature you could grow a pair together in a large container and they can also be moved to some shelter through the winter months.

Clematis 'Kokonoe' - Striking and long flowering too.

Dark and sumptuous flowers on a versatile plant.

We have some exciting news!  We have now added to our collection this stunning new clematis. Kokonoe was short listed for the Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year Competition 2020 and is the sister plant to Taiga which we introduced at Chelsea in 2018 to a delighted gardening public.
We believe that Kokonoe will be as well received and we have some smashing plants ready for sale now!
Our clematis 'Kokonoe' plants are grown in a 3 litre pot and about 2 years old, so not like the small 9cm plants or 2 litre imported plants you will buy elsewhere.

A beautiful double flower head
The flower of 'Kokonoe' first opens very dark with long narrow tepals, as the bloom matures more petaloids from the large central boss open out to make it a rosette like bloom of the darkest royal purple. Each flower head hangs out elegantly from the plant on a long slender stem, so is easily enjoyed whether growing on an obelisk or trellis or at the back of a garden border.
A striking  plant for a feature pot on a nice simple support.
A cross between florida and integrifolia two very popular clematis species this clematis boasts a striking flower of the florida type clematis with it's flamboyant double heads on a long and dainty flower stem. It also has the prolific flowering nature of the integrifolia which bloom in great profusion through the summer months.
Beautiful in a container because of her prolific nature
Pruning is best carried out in the mid spring each year, cutting all the stems down to around 12-18 inches from the soil, just above a new shoot.
If you have the space, put the pot somewhere sheltered over the winter or into an unheated greenhouse to prevent it getting too wet.  If you have her planted in the garden, offer some protection from the elements, with a couple of layers of horticultural fleece cloth pegged into place over the bottom two foot of the stems.

Cultivation Advice

I would recommend growing florida clematis in large pots because they perform very well and they make a stunning display on a patio. Stand the container on the patio from late February to early October and then move it into a sheltered corner or cold glasshouse to over-winter. They will not need heated conditions during the winter, just shelter and if taking them undercover they will probably continue flowering.

In early March the previous seasons growth should be hard pruned down to approximately one foot (30cm) from the soil level and a fresh top-dressing of compost and bonemeal can be applied to the container. Use Westland Gro-Sure Slow Release Plant Food for consistent feeding through the year. 

Avoid keeping the floridas too wet over the winter, on the other hand they must not be allowed to dry out completely. Always ensure the pot drains freely and each year harden the plants off during late March as described in the Planting & Care Guide. 

When planting florida clematis in the garden they will require the shelter of a south or south west facing wall, with good free draining soil. A sheet of bubble plastic or a double layer of garden fleece draped across and pegged into position will keep the worst of the winter weather at bay. This protection can be removed during early March so that hard pruning can be carried out, then feed with a single handful of bonemeal and water it in. Replace the protection until the worst of the weather has passed.

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
