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.
