I would like to fill a semi shady corner with a clematis which flowers through the summer. Any suggestions please.

 

Many thanks image

    One that I want to find room for and which would look lovely in the shade is Miss Bateman - it's a beautiful glowing white with a fascinating dark maroon centre  http://www.taylorsclematis.co.uk/clematis-miss-bateman.html .

     It flowers in May, June and September.

    Looked it up Dove, looks very nice. Also found another of very simular colouring called Fond Memories and a pinky one called Princess Alexandra.

    Does anyone know anything about these please.

    Don't know those ones Lily, but this is a pic of HF Young on my north-facing fence - it has huge blooms and flowers now and a second flush in September.

    comtesse de bouchaud blooms mid to late summer-color fades in sun so good in shade
