A Clematis that’s rather difficult to miss, ‘Mrs Thompson’ is truly magnificent when in flower. This large flowering deciduous variety is perfect for bringing dramatic, dazzling colour to your garden. From May to July you’ll be amazed by the explosion of enormous flowers that grow to 15cm in diameter, covering the plant in incredibly vivid purple-blue blooms with bright red stripes, a sensational colour clash! What’s more, there will be a second flush of flower in September. ‘Mrs Thompson’ is a relatively compact Clematis, and although vigorous, it won’t take over your garden. However, it is large enough to grow up pergolas, garden arches, trellises and obelisks, adding colourful height to you garden, and it’s perfect for growing in patio pots too. Easy to care for, needing nothing more than a light prune after flowering to keep it in shape, and regular watering and feeding – Clematis are hungry plants. Supplied as a potted plant in a 9cm pot, growing to a height of 2.5m (8ft) and width of 1.2cm (4ft).
