Although they are typically and successfully used as climbers, they can be grown almost anywhere under most conditions. This essential guide introduces the genus in all its glory to the novice gardener and extends the knowledge of the more experienced. As well as explaining how to care for clematis, it inspires gardeners to recognize the vast range of clematis available today and the many different ways there are to grow them.


  • A clear, accessible text for all gardeners to follow
  • Advice on selection, design, cultivation and training
  • Guide to some 400 clematis cultivars listing flowering times, preferred aspect, pruning, height and flower size, as well as a description of flower colour and shape

" This is a "must have" book for Clematis enthusiasts. It is 10 years since An Illustrated History of Clematis was published. Since then there have been many new cultivars, the majority of which are probably listed for the first time in this book. This book probably contains the most comrehensive list of current cultivars of any recent publication (one or two nursery catalogues excepted!). For those of us that like a book to browse this will be a very useful addition to our library, both for its advice and the up-to-date plant profiles. "
