Plant details

Wisley Cream' was named after RHS Garden Wisley in Surrey where it was raised by Ken Anslet from seed collected in southern europe. It brings welcome interest to walls and fences in the depths of winter when it produces its attractive greenish-cream, unmarked flowers. Like all early-flowering clematis, it requires little pruning other than the removal of any dead or damaged growth after flowering. Its tender nature means that it is best grown against a sheltered wall.
