New Look & New Plants from Thorncroft Clematis

At the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017 Thorncroft Clematis will be creating a compact clematis garden packed with exciting plants and some exclusive new clematis too.
With our towns and villages becoming more densely built, gardens are inevitably becoming smaller and plants are expected to fight for the remaining space available. Clematis are ideally suited to give excellent flower colour, variety of shape and long flowering periods including year- round flower potential, without taking up huge amounts of ground space.
Our exhibit for 2017 will showcase some of the best ‘value for money’ and ‘value for space’ clematis.

Top of the bill is ‘Taiga’® a stunning new clematis from Japan. The name means river, you can imagine blue waters with the white caps of a rapid when you look at its striking blooms.
This stunning free flowering clematis has it’s official launch at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show with Thorncroft Clematis and it is entered for the Chelsea Plant of The Year Competition!

‘Taiga’® is a wonderful feature plant for a patio container
or against a sunny south facing wall and can reach a width
of 1 metre and a height of 2.5 metres.
When the flower first opens, it is very spikey, then it
becomes like a rosette with large outer tepals, before the final stage when the centre opens out to create a luxuriant fully double flower. Magnificent!! Available Now £19.50 for a 2 litre pot.

GREEN PASSION ‘Zo11050’PBR is the next of our introductions at Chelsea Flower Show.
We really love to have something different and in our opinion this is going to be a clematis that some gardeners will love and others will not!
Entered for the Chelsea Plant of The Year Competition we will be fascinated to hear what the judges make if it.
This extraordinary new clematis has a double green flower head with later tepals having white tips to them. Autumn flowers are double with more white than green in them.
You get a prolific display of flower whether grown in the ground or in a container and it is very hardy, great news for the gardener.
Flowering May-June & again in August-September.
Available Now £16.00 for a 2 litre pot.
SEA BREEZE ‘Zo09063’PBR – A Superb new viticella type clematis from J van Zoest nursery in Holland. Peter first admired this clematis in their nursery before it had even been given a name, so he was thrilled when J van Zoest nursery introduced the plant a year later.
It is a very refreshing colour which is going to be very useful in a dull corner and the plant flowers a long way up the stem so giving blooms from between 2 to 8 feet high and with a long flowering time of June -September it really is very impressive!
Available Now £16.00 for a 2 litre pot.
