New flower named after Princess Charlotte goes on sale in Brent Knoll

A brand new flower called Clematis Charlotte, named after the new Royal Princess, is set to go on sale at a garden centre near Burnham-On-Sea this week.

The limited edition pale blue double flowering Clematis will go on sale across all 147 Wyevale Garden Centres, including Brent Knoll's Sanders Garden World.

With May the best time of the year for hybrid Clematis to bloom, keen gardeners and Royalists alike are set to snap up this unique variety to help gardens look their best.

With only 5,000 available across the UK, David Mitchell, Plant Buyer for Wyevale Garden Centres, expects them to sell out within the next fortnight with double flowering varieties very desirable amongst gardeners.

"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," he said.

"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."

The fitting floral tribute to Charlotte, priced at £14.99, follows a long history of Royals being honoured in Britain's gardens, including her older brother Prince George - Clematis George, a stunning white flower; Diana Princess of Wales - Clematis Diana, a beautiful pink flower; and HM The Queen - a Doriaenopsis Elizabeth II Orchid.
