PLANT CRUSH OF THE MONTH

My latest plant crush is with Clematis. I have planted many at the feet of shrubs & trees and to my delight they make wonderful companions in the vase with Peonies.

                                                                     

Not all Clematis have large showy flowers. Some, like Betty Corning (below) have nodding bell-shaped blooms & fabulous fragrance.

                                                                      

Some, like ‘Josephine’ (below).  

    And ‘Belle of  Woking’ are fully double.

                                                                      

These plants may take several seasons to make a great show. Be patient, you will be richly rewarded.

  1. What wonderful photos. Clematis are such a great flower with so many variations, hard not to try and find room for them all! I suddenly have the urge to go visit a nursery.
