Clematis are a genus within the Ranunculaceae (buttercup) family, native to China and Japan. The genus name derives from the Ancient Greek word meaning ‘climbing plant’. Chinese species grown in the wild eventually made their way to Japan in the 17th century where they were the first to reach European gardens during the 18th century. Once established in Europe, Clematises acquired several meanings during the Victorian era, famous for its powerful symbolism. It came to symbolize both mental beauty and art as well as poverty.
Clematis are deciduous or evergreen shrubs or herbaceous perennials that add colour and height to any garden. They can be trained up fences, walls, pagodas and even against trees and shrubs. There are many varieties of clematis and if you pick the right one you can have them flowering all year round. Their flower forms are varied too with an abundance of colours to choose from.
