Where to plant clematis purpurea plena elegans

Posted: Yesterday at 12:49

I have two options what come to mind but undecided. 

Option 1 - back of pergola, the pergola about 7 half ft tall so not huge and it a triangle shape. Can climb up apple tree as well. The pergola has rose generous gardener to the left front and a wisteria / clematis supernova to the right.

I like the thought of planting clematis betty corning there instead,  for the scent though 

Option 2 - plant next to a white buddleia and let it scramble though it, it doesn't seem to flower long so I would like to extended its use.

I wasn't intending on getting purpurea plena elegans but I couldn't help myself  .

Favourite late flowering clematis

I was think of planting another clematis viticella on the pergola with the wisteria prolific, will it affect / smoother the wisteria in any way ? The wisteria is established, I know it will probably make pruning the wisteria slightly harder.

I'm after buying some more clematis, I've took a shine to the viticella variety's 

Anyone got any favourite  viticella / late flowering clematis or recommended ones. 

I got viticella super Nova on my order list already  I just feel I need to get another one or 2 just in case .

Need one to grow up the pergola into the apple tree if it wishing to so 8 ft + would be more ideal. Another to grow on a 3 / 4 ft fence and along the top but not to vigorous it will swamp the surrounded plants about 5 / 6 ft maybe 

Wisteria flowering...then it snowed
