9781870673471: Choosing Your Clematis

If you want to grow clematis but do not know which, then this is the book for you. The author brings clarity to the subject. Gardeners are bewildered with the choice of over 1,000 clematis in the 'Plantfinder'. How can the gardener know the characteristics, growing requirements, attractions, faults and flowering time of so many? Some years ago the author devised a straightforward classification of clematis by dividing them into twelve groups, a system which is now universally followed. The main part of the book considers all the twelve groups in order of flowering. Each group has an unmistakable description with unambiguous illustrations. A number of easy to grow clematis in each group are described and illustrated. Understandable but brief directions are given for the cultivation of each group. A knowledge of just twelve clematis, one from each group, gives the key to knowing all 1,000. With this key the gardener can quickly choose what appeals and what suits the chosen planting area.
