In the Heritage Rose Garden of Mannington Hall. Clematis are members of the family of Ranunculaceae; the majority of clematis are climbers and most produce single flowers, ranging in size from 2.5cm to 25cm. Some varieties produce double flowers, whereas others can have both single and double flowers, often changing colour through the life of each flower. Many of the clematis species are scented.

The walled garden, established around 1900 and used for growing fruit and vegetables during WWII, now accommodates the Heritage Rose Gardens the main purpose of which is to preserve varieties that may be lost to cultivation in a real garden setting. Thousands of roses were planted in date order, creating small separate gardens, each with a design typical of its period. The rose gardens were opened in 1984 by Dr Max Walters, past director of Cambridge Botanic Gardens.
