Beginners Clematis

Our beginners clematis group have been selected because of their easy to grow nature and ability to perform pretty much regardless of the way they are treated. The shortlist we have provided here should all do well if given careful planting, even if they get neglected a little afterwards!

There is a good spread of flowering times among the list so you can have interest throughout the calendar year and should make life easier for the gardener.
