Idenity of Clematis please.

Posted: 09/07/2015 at 18:23

I've had a suggestion from another forum that it might be Clematis 'Ville de Lyon'. Could that be right? I'm trying to make up a database of my plants so I can redo a border in the autumn and also trying to take cuttings from my named clematis to use on the west facing fence of the new border, so any ideas would be of help.

Idenity of Clematis please.

Can anyone identify this Clematis please? It was in my garden when I moved here. I t grows to a height of at least  2 and 1/2 metres or about 9 feet and has beautiful large flowers. It is full of buds at the moment and some are just starting to open.

Can anyone identify this plant please?

Thanks Hogweed have plenty of those except the pachysandra. Will look and see which of the geraniums I have would do best in shade.

Thanks Charlie I've got some erythroniums and snow drops etc... in the garden that I could move in there so I'll have a look for them.  The soil is definitely humus rich!

I have been cutting back a weeping cotoneaster which was taking over a border and am now looking for ideas to under plant around it. As it's evergreen I need ideas for plants that will tolerate shade and dry conditions.  I'm going to put daffodils from my containers in when they finish flowering but what else?  I have dicentra both a pink and a white one and wondered if they would survive there and also have Brunnera Jack Frost which I thought might work there too. But any other ideas please?
