Browse all of our Clematis.


Delivery season: Clematis are delivered in pots year round, when in stock. It is usually best not to plant out pot grown plants in winter, but to keep them until Spring, because they will establish faster in warm soil and give you better first year growth.
Choosing a size: Small plants are cheaper and more forgiving of less than ideal aftercare, so they are best for a big planting project. If instant impact is your priority, or if you are only buying a few plants for use in a place where it is convenient to water them well in their first year, then you may as well use bigger ones. All our climbing plants come in standard pot sizes.

Growing Kitty Clematis

It will be happiest in alkaline or neutral soil. Fully hardy, it is quite shade-tolerant, but because the flowers are white, you don't need to worry about them fading in full sun like so many coloured varieties.  

Did You Know?

Part of the Boulevard collection by Raymond Evison and Poulsen Nursery, which are very low climbers or shrubs, great for pots and patios. Introduced at the 2017 Chelsea Flower Show.

Kitty Aplin-Haynes is a British girl whose life was saved with help from the Bone Marrow Register maintained by cancer charity Anthony Nolan. She was diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukaemia, a rare form of the disease, in 2011 when she was 15, taking several years to fully recover, and Raymond Evison personally named this clematis to celebrate the happy outcome.

Planting Instructions

In the first spring after planting, cut all stems back to 30cm. Pruning is not necessary in subsequent years, but cutting back dead and damaged stems will keep the plant tidy and encourage vigorous new growth.
