Clematis flowering times
Not in any particular order

This list of Clematis plants is no longer up to date, we may have lost a few or bought more.

Up to date pictures and a list of the Clematis can now be seen on our Plant guide or Slide Shows

Dates are first flower times

After recording the first flower dates over 7 years, we stopped recording them, the list now gives a good idea of what to expect
