The Jackman family are one of the best known names in the history of Clematis breeding. Operating over a huge time span from 1763-1967 from their nursery in Surrey, they bred countless Clematis cultivars and were particularly well known for introducing the larger flowered Clematis. Barbara Jackman was named after Rowland Jackman's wife in 1947.
