Clematis ??? Help

Posted: 30/05/2014 at 20:12

I have a garden (no surprise there!) and young children..... boys mainly........  and several footballs!! Over the last few years I have lost a few plants due to the above mentioned.I have managed to save a poor little Clematis plant that has been so battered over the last few years that it has never had chance to flower, I don't remember where or who I got it from and have no idea what type it is. Having now banned all ball games in my garden my little treasure has given me one flower! Can  anyone recognise it?


What to do with my red saxifrage?

Thanks Dave, I will give it a go this year with my new plants!

Hydrangea macrophylla 'Zorro'

 This is the only planting option I can find, you don't say what colour, I think they look lovely with the Astilbe arendsii

Loganberry Hut, I have no success with this plant, I only ever get one season out of it and then like you the centre dies and it is lost, I would love some advice also from an expert 

What's this??

My Lysimachia punctata is just about in flower and brightening up my back garden, I am going to take a small piece at the end of the year for the front, I just need to find room!

Daisyheadcase, I took a shoot that appeared last year and removed it the best I could and potted it up and left it in the back garden, it has since been given to a friend who has transplanted it into a bigger pot and it is growing nicely, she has 3 flower stems on it. We decided that it will go into her garden next spring. I will try and do the same this year as I would love one in my back garden.

What's this??

Yarrow2 I have done nothing but put in in the ground about 3 years ago, I do however cut back all the flowering stems as soon as it has finished flowering and usually by July new flowers start to form. I am not sure if I am supposed to prune it, something I may have to investigate this year!

Feng Dan Bai’ Seems to be the nearest one I can find to it, sadly because it is early flowering I can no longer take a photo of it. I shall be patient and wait yet another year!

Phygelius 'Funfare Cream', it is stunning every year and it manages to flower 2 twice a year. It is very happy in my garden, I have a friend locally who just can not grow it.
