Love the look of Abilene but worry it states a couple of seasons to get going. Is there anything for impact this summer that's frost hardy. I do love the crossing petals more than the gappy petals but don't mind. i prefer larger flowers as I think on a small obelisk 4-5ft that will have largest impact. How fussy am I sounding!!

Like the look of the Arabella but worry as it states non clingy, won't I have problems getting it to furl around my metal obelisk. I do fancy the type I have to prune right back as I don't like dead twiggy look over winter. I have tried looking at the link given but my iPhone struggles to load the searches

Hi all. I have 2 metal obelisk and I quite fancy putting climbers in the pot. The obelisk stands about 5ft tall. I quite fancy clematis as they are so showy but worried about the length of flowering time and pruning. If anyone can suggest 2 colours/ varieties. I'm looking for something that may be evergreen and long showy flowering season without having to have too much over winter care.

i saw some stunning clematis today and walked away in favour of asking everyone here, how I managed it I will never know. Thanks in advance
