I would like to fill a semi shady corner with a clematis which flowers through the summer. Any suggestions please.

 

Many thanks

One that I want to find room for and which would look lovely in the shade is Miss Bateman - it's a beautiful glowing white with a fascinating dark maroon centre  http://www.taylorsclematis.co.uk/clematis-miss-bateman.html .

 It flowers in May, June and September.

Looked it up Dove, looks very nice. Also found another of very simular colouring called Fond Memories and a pinky one called Princess Alexandra.

Does anyone know anything about these please.

Don't know those ones Lily, but this is a pic of HF Young on my north-facing fence - it has huge blooms and flowers now and a second flush in September.
