Is it worth planting a weak clematis (Perle d'Azur, Group 3)

I grew Perle d'Azure in my last garden (shady inner city dirt) ..... it performed well; it's a beautiful clematis

Morning all  

Well, someone's got a bloody nose haven't they?  The British electorate will tolerate a lot but they do not like arrogance and hubris ... Looks like there's been a lot of tactical voting. 

Lets see what happens next ...

I've had free prescriptions for around 15 years because of my thyroid condition, but I've always gone to the pharmacy and bought any non prescription painkillers I've needed. Even with this danged foot the hospital asked if I needed painkillers and I said I was coping with paracetamol or Solpadeine   They said if I needed more to ring my GP. I suppose some people would have accepted prescription meds just in case

Useful to know ......... for the next time

It's the letters above the text box next to the Smiley ... the ones that let you choose Bold, Italic or Underline

Sometimes new posters seem to somehow copy them into the text box.

I suppose that roots can merge ..... rather like some branches can fuse when trees are pleached.
