This clematis is exactly what I wanted for a shady spot and I am delighted with it. Thorncroft delivered it beautifully packed during the coronavirus lockdown. I was reorganising my garden this spring and 'Blue Angel' quickly established itself despite being in competition with the old rambler rose it was tasked to climb. In just a couple of months it grew about a metre and now in mid-July it has many flowers brightening up a gloomy spot as the rose has finished flowering. Great clematis, great supplier, exceptional value. Many thanks.
