Companion plant with Rosa Wedding Day Rambler
Hello, I have trained a Wedding Day Rambling rose over my pergola however its only in bloom for a short time and I was wondering what else I could grow alongside it to create a longer spell of colour. Many thanks

One or more of the viticella clematis? Cut them almost to the ground each spring and let them get on with it for the rest of the season.

I agree. Viticellas come in a wide range of flower colour and forms and different levels of vigour from 2.5m to 6 metres once established.
This is a list of viticellas for you to peruse -
but you could also check with Hawthorne nurseries and their website as Richard, who runs it, has a national collection of viticellas and can give personal advice.

Thank you Hostafan1 and Obelixx for that advice. I will certainly take a look at the Viticellas sounds a great idea. Many thanks
