Wyevale Garden Centres launches 'royal' Clematis 'Charlotte'

The plant is named after the Royal Princess and follows the popularity of Clematis 'George' launched after the birth of the first child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - Prince George - in 2013, which was also grown and bred by New Leaf Plants.

The limited edition (5,000 available) pale blue double flowering Clematis will go on sale this week across all 147 Wyevale Garden Centres priced at £14.99.

Plant buyer David Mitchell said: "In 2013 the Clematis 'George' was our fastest selling clematis of the year with many of our customers asking if we would honour the newest Royal in the same way.

"We are proud to have sourced a one-of-a-kind double flowering clematis to honour Princess Charlotte, keeping a British tradition alive, and in turn making history.

"We expect this limited edition variety to make a popular collectors' item for royalists, those seeking a unique gift for friends or any Clematis enthusiast seeking something exclusive."
