Fast growing clematis
Hi there, please can anyone help me with a question that's been on my mind for some time about clematis Montana. I keep seeing everywhere around this time of year so many houses, trellises etc absolutely covered in clematis. I have since worked out it's clematis Montana but is it a silly question to ask if this actual clematis has a name rather than just it's type? My mum is convinced there are lots of clematis Montana's and gave me one a while ago (what she says is a Montana) but it's been two years and it's definitely not a fast grower! I would really like to get this one (see photo below) to cover my trellis. Can anyone help with its name and where I can get one (not online) I am in the Somerset county. If I get one this year how quickly will it establish and cover the trellis?
they take a few years to get to that size, they get their roots established first. I think it would be too big on an arch, they’re betterleft to ramble and scramble over sheds or in trees or along fences.
