I think I mentioned that my Clem. Daniel Deronda had never been happy in the west facing border ... well, it's given up the ghost ... I had been going to dig it up and pot it and give it some tlc and find a new home for it, but during the mild March it put on a growth spurt and produced lots of buds so I left it there ... I've been giving it plenty of water as the soil there is very free draining, but it's keeled over and died. Possibly the dreaded 'wilt' ... or possibly just the effort of producing all those buds finished it off.
Anyway, now I need something to climb up that trellis fence ... west facing and slightly shaded from the south, but as I sad, very free-draining soil.
The trellis is about 1.75m tall by 1m wide.
Colours in that bed are pinky-plums, creams, apricots, rusty-yellows and bluey green (Hosta Hadspen Blue and Rosa glauca).
