The Gardener's Guide to Growing ClematisBook - 1998
The sheer range of flower colour and patterning combined with a wide variety of flower shape from the large and flamboyant cultivars through to the delicate bell-shaped species means that there is a clematis for every situation and effect. Furthermore, if you choose your plants carefully it is possible to have a clematis in flower from spring through to autumn with flowers often followed by intricate fluffy seedheads. Specialists and collectors will delight in Raymond Evison's unique insight into clematis gained as a plant hunter, breeder and nurseryman while gardeners will gain much from his knowledgeable advice on cultivation and garden uses. A comprehensive plant directory divided into the distinct clematis groups provides detailed and authoritative descriptions of around 375 species and varieties.
