With its large deep purple flowers, marked with a cerise bar, this eye-catching Clematis Mrs N Thompson is a real show stopper in the garden. Named after the lady that discovered it, Nelly Thompson, this deciduous climber flowers in early summer and often will have another flush in September. 


Clematis need their roots to be cool and their heads in the sun, so plant with roots shaded by other plants. Use Clematis ‘Mrs N Thompson’ to add bold colour to a plain background, such as a fence or wall. 


Flowers: May – June, September

  • Moist, well drained soil
  • Full sun or partial shade
  • East, South, West-facing aspects
  • Fully hardy
  • Group 2 pruning
  • As Clematis like cool roots, try to position so that the roots will be shaded from the sun by another plant. 
  • Bear in mind the space they will need to climb and provide a suitable structure - trellis, wall, fence or other plant - to climb through
  • Can be a skin irritant and harmful to pets if ingested
