Clematis tangutica 'Lambton Park'

The species has bright yellow lantern shaped flowers from June  to September, followed by masses of silky seed heads. this named form has even bigger flowers. Looks wonderful up into a hedge. Can be grown in sun or semi shade and hard pruned if required.

Clematis tangutica was introduced from China in 1898. The form Lambton Park was found by Tom Bennett who spotted it growing, as a feature, at the now-defunct Lambton Park Garden Centre [County Durham, UK] in 1985. It had been there for a few years but they couldn’t tell him where they’d had it from and it wasn’t labeled. So it was given the name 'Lambton Park'
