Marie Boisselot', also sometimes called 'Madame le Coultre', is one of the best single white clematis - a sparkling pure white with clusters of creamy yellow stamens in the centre. It is not a variety that needs regular hard pruning, but once plants grow big the flowers may grow up too high to be easily enjoyed. When this happens, prune the plant to within a few inches of ground level in early spring, and do not repeat the process until it once again gets too big. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

I've grown this lovely clematis in two gardens now, one in Somerset and one in Shropshire, and found it very healthy, strong growing, and covered in wonderful pure white flowers through the whole summer until late into September.Recommended.
