The best clematis for your garden: in pictures

'The Vagabond’ Best for Long flowering The gorgeous cobalt blue of these very large flowers really stood out in the trial, and they still looked lovely even when they faded to a more washed-out pinky blue. The sheer flower power was also outstanding; at their peak the plants were almost completely cloaked in vibrant blooms. Bushy plants which didn’t attempt a getaway and silky, spidery seed heads also added to their charm. This was a fabulous plant from all angles. H x S 120cm x 70cm

Lauren's Garden Inspiration

Purple is a mainstay to the garden & I cannot think of a plant colour it doesn't "Go" with. Purple & orange, purple & pink, purple & blue, & yellow, & red....need I continue ?

1 Salvia nemorosa 'Caradonna’ from the mildly aromatic silvery green leaves to the violet flower spikes with purple stems. Bees love the flowers that stay looking sharp long after the petals fall, thanks to papery bracts that hold their colour. Dead-heading – either little and often or in one go – encourages new flowering side-shoots till October. 'Caradonna’ loves sun; use it as a purple ribbon through late season grasses or, at 18in (45cm), it is the perfect centrepiece for a pot.
