Spindly Clematis

Posted: 12/10/2017 at 19:48

I've got a group 3 clematis on an oblisque that has flowered nicely but it only has 1 stem coming out of the ground that then branches out and covers the support. Is there anyway to encourage it to put out more stems? If i cut it back hard there will be no greenery just 1 brown stick ?

Can somebody tell me the name of this plant? Growing in sunny position

Anyone know what this climbing shrub is?

Is it evergreen? Flowers sort of look like Pileostegia viburnoides (climbing hydrangea)

What is this please? Triffid!!!

I have 3 very young Philadelphus Belle Etoile in these beds and they seem to be very healthy and strong. Here are a few photos I took today; plenty of geraniums, ladys mantle, campanula, nepeta and Rose Isaacc Pereiere (sp?) and R. Boule de Neige which were planted winter 2016. Infact pretty much everything was planted last autumn/ winter and the north aspect hasnt stopped it in my opinion

Thanks for the info Alan. I accidentally pulled off a loose plant from this one and potted it up; hopefully I wont have to buy any more when this one dies!

Here is my House Leek flowering; considering it is planted in a small gap in our garden wall it's doing pretty well for itself

Quite possibly, maybe rabbits have had a chew! We are in Derbyshire above 1000ft; would this affec? Short season? It's nice to find new plants growing you havent seen before and hearing their name is a bonus 😁

Young plant? First time ive seen it to be honest. The leaves do look like the plant you say when i google it. I will check on the flowers in a few days to see whether they are scented?
