Book Description

Dec 24 2007

Clematis have long enjoyed popularity in gardens large enough to accommodate them. Now, with the arrival of a new generation of cultivars that excel in mixed borders, containers, and other small spaces, there is more reason than ever to grow them. As well as being modest in height, many of these new clematis are extremely floriferous and self-supporting in a wide range of garden situations and they are joined here by a selection of classic species and cultivars that perform well.

The clematis featured in this book are hand-picked for their longer flowering periods, large flowers and resistance to diseases. Internationally renowned clematis breeder Raymond Evison recommends the best clematis for particular situations, such as containers, mixed borders, patios, deck gardens, hanging baskets, and balconies. Clematis associate well with a variety of other plants and the author lists suitable companion plants and explains how to achieve a compatible mix of color, shape, and other characteristics.

This unprecedented book celebrates a new generation of clematis and will appeak to both established enthusiasts and beginners.

Product Description


"Evison selects varieties [of clematis] based on their flowering season and finds a host plant or a support that would benefit from free-flowering clematis. After ogling the color pictures of hundreds of varieties in this book, it's hard to think of one that won't." Adrian Higgins, Washington Post

5.0 out of 5 stars Helped me be a better clematis gardener July 22 2009

This book provided information on how to better cultivate the clematis I already have as well as cultivars that might work well in given situations in the future. I had two of Raymond Evison's Patio series in pots on my deck, and both had done very well in terms of flowering this spring but then had died back once the heat came on. I found that this is possibly the result of being in too-small pots, so I have bought some larger, self-watering pots to transplant them into once conditions are right. The book is beatifully produced and the information is very helpful.
