My gardening hero Christopher Lloyd was always a big clematis fan and one of his favourites was 'Prince Charles'. It's very reliable and long-flowering, covered in light blue flowers from late June until the end of August.

It looks similar and is in the same group as 'Perle d'Azur', but doesn't get as gangly, nor does it succumb to mildew. It makes a fantastic combination with climbing roses or, as you'll see it at Great Dixter, growing up through shrubs. It also does well in a pot.

Mine was planted at the end of March against a pergola and has now reached six foot and is covered in beautiful blue flowers. I chose it because it is long flowering so look forward to many more weeks of flowers!

The clematis arrived in excellent condition, very well packaged and the care instructions were very easy to follow even for a novice like me. The clematis is growing very happily in my garden.
