Decorating with Clematis

Late flowering clematis are a beautiful addition to the summer garden flowering in late July and August when the garden is beginning to look tired.

They are easy to maintain just needing a single prune in winter to cut back the old growth and then tying in as required as the new shoots emerge. They only take a few years to establish well and reward an annual feed of mushroom compost with masses of blooms. There are endless varieties available -either a viticella or texensis type are most common. They can be grown up fences and walls but are happy to scramble through trees and shrubs and borders. Less well known is that they make great cut flowers either as a single specimen or in a mixed bouquet. Use them to adorn a special dinner party or float in water with candles to admire. The foliage is also pretty for cutting. Snipping a few flowers here and there will not diminish the display.
