Buy Clematis 'Alba Luxurians' clematis (group 3): Nodding green tinted white flowers

This climber is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained, neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Open, bell-shaped white flowers with purplish-black centres and grey-green leaves. This late summer flowering clematis is ideal for growing through trees, shrubs and climbing roses. The elegant white flowers with bright green tips are much sought after by flower-arrangers. A viticella-type, it has a good resistance to clematis wilt and tolerates a certain amount of wind.

  • Garden care: In early spring cut back the previous year's stems to a pair of strong buds about 15-20cm (6-8in) above ground-level and apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the plant, avoiding the immediate crown.

Suggestions for a Cherry tree, and climber to screen an external boiler please Hi, I wonder if you can suggest some plants for the following situations? We are creating a garden (25ft) that will get good sun until late afternoon, but it is very exposed to winds etc. in the wintertime. I want to put a tree at the end of the garden as a focal point. I love cherry trees, so I was wondering if this might be an option, and if, so which variety do you recommend? Also, we have an external boiler which I want to cover with planting, -needs to be dense through the summer months, can you suggest any climbers/plants to screen it? The space is mainly in shade until late afternoon, North East facing, although against the back of our house so it is sheltered from the wind by a neighbouring hedge. Thanks for your help

Hello Hazel, I think a cherry would be lovely, but you should opt for one of the smaller types so it doesn't take over you whole garden. The best is probably Prunus Kiku-shidare-zakura - just click on the following link to go straight to it. http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/trees/other-trees/deciduous/small-garden-trees/ok-for-small-gardens/prunus-kiku-shidare-zakura/classid.4643/ As for the boiler, if you opt for any of the group 3 Clematis, then these get cut back hard each year in early spring, so you may be able to peel it off the boiler as it dies down. My favourites are:- C. Alba Luxurians http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/climbers/clematis/normal-flowers/clematis-alba-luxurians/classid.7066/ C. Abundance http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/climbers/clematis/clematis-abundance/classid.2000005866/ or C. Arabella http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/climbers/clematis/clematis-arabella/classid.2000004765/ I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor
