    Large, creamy-white flowers, with chocolate brown anthers, are produced throughout the summer on this vigorous clematis.

      Beautiful flowers, I planted mine in a pot in some shade. Will have to move the position for next season as needs to be in more sun.

        Comments about Crocus Clematis 'Henryi':

        Soon after I planted it, it displayed two flowers, large and pure white. They are holding up well in the recent (unusual) rain. It has put on a lot of growth, climbing up to a trellis panel that it should eventually cover. A number of buds suggest many flowers to come. A really active plant. I recommend it, especially in the version from Crocus !

          This Clematis is gorgeous when it flowers. Beautiful big white flowers. "Henryi" is well known to be difficult to flower. Cutting down to a low height is recommended every Spring to encourage flowering. Yet my plant even though in a good position, with regular clematis feed still has not flowered last or this year. Plenty of healthy foliage, just no flowers.

          • Q:

            Is this suitable to be grown in a container? I need a climber which can be grown in a container, to cover a very tall wall which is North East Facing. The garden is well sheltered. The wall gets the sun in the morning. An evergreen would be preferable but think this might be a stretch...

              Hello,

              If you click on the link below it will take you to all the climbers we sell that are suitable for growing in a large pot (provided it is kept well fed and watered), and will cope with a North-East-facing wall. It is worth mentioning however that whatever you choose will produce fewer flowers in such a shady spot, and as the roots will be restricted, it will not reach its full potential (in size), so may not climb to the top of a tall wall.

            Climbers for North East facing wall

            Hi I was just wondering if you could give me some advice please. Our house is a Victorian end of terrace - the side of the house faces North-East. The side of the house is very bare (only two tiny windows on ground floor) and we would like to grow something up the wall. We have had trouble with graffiti in the past and want to paint the side of the house and then put trellis to about 7ft. Can you suggest something that would grow quite quickly please. Kind Regards Joanna

              Hello Joanna, If you click on the link below it will take you to our fast growing climbers, which will cope with low light levels. If you click into each card you can then see the eventual height and spread of each plant - some of them are pretty big. http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/climbers/plcid.15/vid.186/vid.237/ I hope this helps.

            Dear Sir/Madam, Could you recommend a climbing plant for a trellis? The trellis in question is set against my neighbour's wall, and faces northward. So, I'm looking for a plant to provide maximum, attractive, fast-growing coverage. Yours faithfully, Peter

              Hello Peter, I have done a search on our Plant Finder and if you click on the following link it will take you to all the climbers which will grow on a north facing aspect and are fast growing (although keep in mind most plants are going into their dormant period now) http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/climbers/plcid.15/vid.186/vid.237/ I hope this helps.
