Clematis I.D?

Posted: 05/12/2016 at 12:34

there's one stem near the bottom left that might be clematis, (only might be). Nothing else is.

I love a mixed hedge and it's more appropriate to a traditional country garden. 

Beech and hornbeam are native to the more southern parts of the UK. I don't know how they do further north, someone will know. I have hornbeam in 2 aspects and it doesn't cope well in the one that's exposed to full sun and prevailing wind, though I think the soil is poorer and drier there as well and that may be the biggest problem

Has it got to be mixed native? Hornbeam is native.

Hawthorn makes a denser hedge. 

Beech, also native, hangs on to its old leaves til spring

Make the photo smaller, I reduce mine to 30%. If they're too big (and too big isn't very big) they just don't load but you don't get a clue why not

Tiny and dried out. Pot them up, water them in and protect them til spring

I think it could be, raisingirl. Not a shrub I know well and I couldn't bring the word to mind

Not hardy here GD. I envy your tropical paradise sometimes, though I love the changes in seasons
