Ceanothus Lemon & Lime is an exciting new variety of evergreen California Lilac - an upright shrub with bright gold and green variegated foliage - hence the name Lemon & Lime.
It will produce masses of sweetly fragrant blue flowers in Spring through to early Summer which the bees love!

Named after an Argentinian Doctor who bred it. This has single flowers that are coloured a warm pink and which have a darker carmine stripe at the centre of each petal, or in many cases broad central zone. These showy flowers with their pointed tipped petals have a lively and bright effect. They are in flower from late spring to early summer and have a further show in late summer. The modest height of this form, and its happiness in a sunny or a shady position means it can be used to climb into large shrubs as long as they are not to be pruned. This clematis is in clematis pruning group 2.
Enjoys full sun/partial shade in moist but well drained soil.
Beautiful big, dark purple flowers with crimson suffusion lying longitudinally at the heart of each widespread petal. The stamens are a thick cluster of creamy white. A strong looking form that flowers in late spring and again in late summer. It likes a sunny position, though tolerant, and is suited to growing in containers.

This variety has single to semi-double coppery-pink flowers during May and June. The flower colour begins as an off-white and matures to its lovely, long-lasting copper tones. The plant reaches up to 7 metres in height and likes sunshine. It is suitable for growing against a wall, but keep an eye on gutters and the strength of roofs.
Enjoys well-drained soil.
This variety has deep pink flowers with bronze green foliage. It flowers in May and June. The hearty nature of Clematis montana cultivars means that you should keep an eye their growth: a clematis in full flourish can be a considerable weight. If you train it up the side of your house, consider its possible effect on your gutters and roof. This and the other montanas are excellent subjects for clambering over large trees, such as an aged apple. They can also be trained into conifers such as Chamaecyparis lawsoniana.
Height after 10 years-8m+
Enjoys sun/partial shade in well-drained soil.

This clematis has the natural beauty of a wild flower. It was found growing wild in Northern India and appears unaltered from its wild form. It has large white flowers that are generally composed of four petals (tepals). They spread their tips wide, and have at their heart a good cluster of yellow anthers. It is an easy going, vigorous plant that has dark green leaves that beautifully offset the lightly fragrant flowers. It will flower from late April through May. Its vigour suits it to an ample site such as a large fence, tall hearty trees, or large pergolas. If it does need containment a few of the oldest stems should be removed as soon as flowering is ended.
Eventual height and spread 12x10m
Enjoys full sun/partial shade in moisure retentive, well-drained soil.
This late flowering clematis produces white flowers with greenish yellow centres in July and August. The flowers are carried on downy stalks and have four oblong petals, widely separated to create a right-angled looking flower. They are said to have the scent of chocolate, although some plants sold under this name may not conform to the description. If you want just one plant on your pergola, this could be a good choice.
Eventual height and spread 10x10m
Enjoys full sun/partial shade in well-drained, moisture retentive soil.
This is a rampant and potentially vast climber, useful if you have a few acres of wall to cover! It looks good on a tree, large and sturdy enough to take it, but is wildly unsuitable for small gardens. It should really be sold with a machete. Russian vine has small green leaves and quite pretty frothy white flower plumes, on reddish stalks. It grows at the rate of a foot or so a day and intrudes itself everywhere. This climber must be used with care, it comes into its own in large scale landscaping and has been used to great effect on some of the screen fencing round London Heathrow Airport where it has colonised by the mile. It does provide excellent nesting cover for birds.
Enjoys full sun/partial shade in most soil.

This is an exceptionally fine ivy, the leaves are smaller than those of Hedera colchica, but are still big, hearty affairs. On a vertical plant they hang pendulously. The centre of each leaf is irregularly coloured green, splashed with creamy-yellow and this looks particularly fine on a red-brick wall.
Enjoys all garden situations and will cover a North or East facing wall.
