Clematis can be deciduous or evergreen shrubs or herbaceous perennials, mostly climbing by twining leaf-stalks, and often with showy flowers. Some have attractive fluffy seed-heads in autumn

'Lambton Park' is a vigorous deciduous climber, with nodding large lantern-shaped single flowers to 7cm across, with four bright yellow pointed sepals. Large silky seed-heads develop on older flowers as flowering continues from early summer to mid autumn
