Buy Clematis 'Henryi' clematis (group 2): Splendid white flowers

This climber is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Large, creamy-white flowers, with chocolate brown anthers, are produced throughout the summer on this vigorous clematis. It is perfect for growing up a trellis with other climbers or to cover a wall. To encourage blooms to cover the whole plant, train stems so that they are evenly spaced on the trellis.

  • Garden care: Remove dead and damaged stems before growth begins in early spring, cutting all remaining stems back to where strong buds are visible. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.

I would recommend


I purchased this clematis primarily in memory of my cat Henry who died last year. We planted it in a spot on one of the borders where he used to enjoy snoozing. It's a lovely delicate small flowered clematis, and we are looking forward to seeing it flower again this year, and hopefully putting on more growth.




highly recommended


I'm hoping it will climb through a PARK DIRECTOR red rose I have growing over the early to tell yet.

Good plant


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.

Quick action


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 !

When it flowers,...


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.

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

Thank you so much Helen, this helps a lot.

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. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

Climbing Plant on a North-Facing Trellis 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

Peter Lawson

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) I hope this helps.
