Clematis texensis is found in nature primarily in the state of Texas. Clematis texensis is a small-flowered clematis with Clematis texensis as one of its ancestors. They are very beautiful plants with graceful flowers, but they are mostly heat-loving and not frost tolerant. These clematis grow well in the southern US states and can be grown in the UK and France, but they are not at all suitable for the northern US states, nor for northern European countries.
Clematis ‘Princess Kate’ belongs to the texensis group. It is a fairly heat-loving and not frost-resistant clematis and is excellent for many US states as well as the UK, but not suitable for Canada.
