PATIO PERFECTION-Our NEW stunning 3 plant collection. These Hardy Perennial Climbers have been container grown so can be planted at any time of the year. We despatch WITH container so the roots are safe
Our new collection features 3 clematis that are ideal for growing in a container on the patio. These clematis really pack a punch and flower all the way down to the base of the plant. Each has flowers of the richest most beautiful colour and will leave any patio dazzling! The collection includes:
Clematis 'PIILU' (also known as Little Duckling) - Clematis 'Piilu' pronounced pie-loo is also known as 'Little Duckling' and is a delicious climber. The flowers are light purplish pink with an eye catching wide dark purplish-red bar. Many Clematis bloom only near the top of the plant, leaving the bottom bare, but Clematis 'Piilu' blooms top to bottom. The flowering period, of this particular variety of Clematis, is also outstanding as it starts in May and keeps blooming until late October and if the autumn is mild extends into November.
Clematis 'Red Pearl'- Clematis 'Red Pearl' is an outstanding hardy and easy to grow introduction. It is of compact habit, growing between 1.8-2 meters (5 to 6 feet) and is ideal for growing in patio containers as it has been bred to flower low on the vine and produce new growth close to the base.
Clematis 'Blue eyes'- Clematis 'Blue Eyes' has beautiful sky-blue flowers in profusion. A compact free-flowering climbing plant of recent introduction. An excellent variety that grows well with moderate growth to a nice height of 6 to 8 feet (2 m) tall, making 'Blue Eyes' perfect for patio container gardening. I love to see Clematis 'Blue Eyes' growing in containers on terraces and balconies, they just seem to flourish, making them perfect for the small garden .
