This queen of climbers slips neatly into the confines of small gardens, in both town and country settings. However, with such a diversity of shapes, sizes, colors and flowering times, it may be hard to choose just one clematis for your garden.
Starting with a simplified classification guide, the author provides all the information you need to narrow your selection and provide basic care to ensure it will thrive for years. The book features large photographs of more than 95 varieties along with a descriptive paragraph, presented in botanical groups (evergreens, atragenes, Montana, large-flowered hybrids, early large-flowered hybrids, doubles and semidoubles, late large-flowered hybrids, viticellas, texensis, late-flowering species, orientalis and herbaceous). Tables at the end of the book list clematis species by color from white, green, cream, lemon and orange to red, pink, violet, blue and mauve.
Hardcover, 9-1/2" x 11", 160 pages, 2004.
