Hi, I am after planting a really colourful red/pink climber in my sisters south facing garden and was wondering what I could plant?? Any ideas, I was thinking perhaps a honey suckle but was wondering if there where any more out there Thank you
Clematis are lovely and there are lots of pink or red ones
Clematis Etoile Rose is very pink! Cup shaped or for a more open larger flower 'Nelly Moser'
Or there is Campsis Radicans but depends where abouts in UK you are cos maybe a bit soft?
Ok I will take a look at those, thank you
Hi Paul, this is Clematis 'Barbara' it flowers from June to September.
This is Clematis'Ruutel' also flowers June to September.
What about Actinidia kolomikta?
Not something I've grown myself, but it does look very pretty, and carries a lot of pink for a large part of the year.
How about Tropaeolum speciosum, you can grow it through other plants
Lots of clematis varieties will be lovely Paul. You'll be spoilt for choice with colours from pale pinks to deep reds. If you want a red - Rouge Cardinal or Niobe are lovely - not scarlet but a deep sultry colour. Lots of us recommend looking at Taylors Clematis Nursery online as you'll get loads of info on there. Only problem is that you'll struggle to pick just one!
PS -Someone mentioned Nellie Moser - it fades badly in a sunny aspect and is best on shady wall or fence.
Nothing like having variety in life to choose from, I will take a look at those. Thank you
