Plant Overview

A lovely old variety of Clematis. Raised in the early 1900's by French botanist Francisque Morel and introduced into the UK by Gravetye Manor's then head gardener Ernest Markham in 1934.

Masses of beautiful creamy white flowers from July to October. Vigorous and easy to grow.

Awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Grow against a wall or through trees and shrubs in a sunny spot. Reaches approximately 15'.

From International Clematis Society: "There are several late-blooming clematis with flowers whose undersides add noticeably to their ornamental effect -- 'Star of India' and 'Lilacina Floribunda' come readily to mind -- but there is probably no clematis better loved for this unusual feature than C. 'Huldine.' Its midsized flowers, with their six gracefully arching tepals and creamy center, are nearly always described as pearly white, and so they appear against a dark background. But they are translucent as well, and this gives them what might be described as their one-two punch. Plant the vine where the bloom can be seen at least sometimes with the sun behind it, and the flower shows off its right cross, the track of mauve at every midrib. There must be very few garden books that mention 'Huldine' and fail to point this out."

Height: 15ft

Common name(s): Clematis

All our plants are supplied in 9cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant.
The majority of our plants are grown outdoors. This means that they follow their natural growth patterns and are ready to plant at any time of the year. If you order the plants in winter, they are likely to be dormant and died back to ground level, ready to shoot again in spring - just like the herbaceous perennials in your own garden. Very occasionally, in winter, we may indicate on the packing slip that a plant needs to be hardened off before planting out. This will be because it has just come out of a polytunnel. If you have any questions about our plants or growing methods, please feel free to drop us an email.
We grow most of what we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
