Growing clematis through bamboo

Posted: 13/10/2016 at 22:26

my bamboo is very bendy, I think a clematis would weigh it down too far.

Maybe not all bamboos are as bendy as mine.

Identify plant

maybe it's Filipendula rubra, lots of cultivars to choose from.

no leaves, no size, no shape of plant, no flowering time, we don't want it too easy

the first is an echium, without seeing the whole plant I couldn't say which but probably Echium vulgare. The second is too small and blurred for me to see

fox gloves/salvias

Posted: 13/10/2016 at 14:17

People have posted here that foxglove die back for winter, mine don't. I wouldn't expect a native plant to be frost sensitive. Even if you cut the foliage back it will regrow and cover the place where the anemones are. They aren't a good combination. Large strong bulbs like narcissi will push their way through. Little things won't.

What sort of salvias? Shrubby or herbaceous perennials?
