There are many varieties of this species of Clematis, ranging in flower colour from pink to white, with both double and single forms available. Clematis montanas are early flowering, usually being in full flower by May, and their rapid growth and vigorous growth habit make them ideal where a climbing plant is need for quick coverage. Growing to a height of 10 metres, this climber will grow in any fertile soil, in sum or semi shade, and is fully hardy. Once the flowers have died back its beautiful bronzed leaves are revealed.
Sweet Peas are annual climbing plants native to Sicily and southern Italy. Available now, they will need protection from late frosts, so grow in a cold greenhouse or on a windowsill until they can be safely planted outdoors. Growing between 1- 2 metres in height given suitable supports such as trellis or garden obelisks , they will put on a display of sweetly scented, colourful flowers through the summer that will add a ‘cottage’ feel to any garden. Grown amongst vegetable plants their sweet scent will help attract pollinating insects to your plot.
One of the first large bulbs of the year to emerge, the Crown Imperial grows to a height of about 3 feet and is ‘crowned’ by a ring of bright yellow or orange flowers on top of a sturdy stem. Great for a sunny or lightly shaded border, this exotic looking perennial makes a real statement in any garden. The yellow flowered for ‘Maximea Lutea’ has gained the Royal Horticultural Societies Award of Garden merit for being an out-standing garden plant. Easy to grow in any fertile soil, these plants will look impressive in any setting.
The joy of this deciduous shrub is in the new growth emerging in the Spring. One of the first shrubs to break bud, its fern-like foliage is bright pink as it first appears, before settling to a bright lime green. Exceptionally hardy, it will grow in any moist but well draining soil, reaching a final height of between 2 and 4 metres. It may also be used as screening, as it can reach a spread of 3 metres if left unpruned. Once the foliage has faded to it’s bright summer green, white flowers appear at the ends of it’s stems.
