Cultivation Information
The bright yellow nodding lantern-shaped flowers are followed by beautiful silky seed-heads. Grow in a sunny position to enhance the coconut-like perfume. A favourite in our garden.
Also known as clematis tangutica Lambton Park.
Awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit

Cultivation Advice
In some countries these wonderful plants are considered to be invasive and problematic, however in the UK this is not the case. The tangutica clematis are extremely useful in the garden, providing colour and interest from mid-summer through to late autumn, with most producing excellent seed-heads for added interest in the winter months.  They cope well with hot, sunny situations and are drought tolerant, even thriving in poorer conditions where you would think they would struggle. They will not tolerate very heavy clay soils that sit waterlogged, nor any over-watering.  Very easy to grow and low maintenance with simple pruning. Avoid them becoming too excessively wet during their first autumn and winter in the ground or perhaps plant in the spring.
The tangutica can all be late to show new shoots and growth in the spring, so do not panic and think that they are dead, they are just having a lay in!

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 Lambton Park
14 July 2023  | 

This is my latest clematis purchase from Thorncroft Clematis. I bought this one as it had a sentimental attachment for me. It was discovered in Lambton Park, County Durham and that county is my birthplace.
I have never been disappointed with my purchases from Thorncroft clematis. They take particular care to ensure your plants get to you safely by paying attention to the packing. I will be buying from Thorncroft Clematis again.

Superb Clematis for bees
12 July 2023  | 

Out of stock when I first hoped to purchase it. Notified when stock became available. Immediately placed order and it was delivered soon after. Came through well, size about what I expected it to be, it looked healthy and it is now growing. Superb service. Great Clematis for wildlife garden. Bumblebees like the flowers. Honeybees like the leaves.

Great expectations
09 May 2023  | 

A healthy looking plant that I hope will do well on a large section of rustic trellis. I prepared the ground with plenty of grit for drainage and the south facing position with some shade in the afternoon should suit it. It's starting to produce some new growth and I can't wait to see it romp away and maybe flower in late summer.

Best clematis supplier Iíve ever experienced

What a find!
I am delighted with this plant
It can beautifully packaged and looks super healthy with well established rooting system.
Excellent price -much cheaper than garden centre
The accompanying card about planting and aftercare came with the best, most easily understood clematis care instructions Iíve ever readÖ. So much so that Iíve kept the card on my gardening resources as a reference for caring for all my clematis plants.
