    Broad, bell-shaped, light to mid-blue spring flowers and mid-green leaves. This early spring flowering clematis is perfect for covering a north or east facing wall. The fluffy seed-heads, an important decorative feature, look fabulous glistening in the sun.

  • Garden care: No routine pruning is necessary. If the spread of the plant needs to be restricted prune immediately after flowering, cutting back overlong shoots to healthy buds. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.

      Comments about Crocus Clematis 'Frankie':

      This was the last part of a Christmas voucher and I bought it because my late husband Frank loved clematis.I was so pleased with the healthy looking specimen that arrived recently, Good amount of healthy leaves and buds which I am sure will romp away in a border facing my kitchen window. It's so good being able to receive plants from Crocus, no "poorly" or neglected ones ever arrive so one can shop with confidence that what one buys will give years of pleasure.
