Hello
 
I have wanted to buy evergreen clematis 'Repens' / 'Bells of Emei Shan' or 'Twinkle Bell' for a very long time, but I am struggling to find anyone that has either for sale.
 
I wondered if anyone may know of mail order suppliers for either plants please?
 
Many thanks
Tara

Hi There
Have you tried Crug Farm Nursery in North Wales they had them a while back .
I am in Canada at the moment and do not have their address to hand
Best of luck

Yes Ron is correct they do sell this plant although best to phone or email them first for availability.
You could also look at Taylors who also advertise it for sale on their website (assuming you reside within the EU).

Thank you for the replies.
 
Crug farm has neither variety in stock, and Taylors have Repens, but the shipping cost at £9.95 is a bit steep.
 
I'll keep on trying to track these plants down closer to home.
 
Thanks again !

Hi Tara
I do not know if you managed to get C.repens ( Bell of Emei Shan  ) one thing I forgot to mention , They will grow through other plants if they have a mossy
texture , but are difficult to Tye up , and also they prefer an acid soil . just a further thought when I was looking through the mail . Best wishes
