Hi. New to this (and gardening) so any help advice appreciated. Wondering which of these two plants would be best planted behind an azalea and between two clematis.
solanum if it's sunny, hydrangea if shady. Solanum become huge. Have you got room?
Thanks for the quick response. It's a sunny spot of about 6'x6' between the two clematis which are just in their 2nd year but have lots of new growth. I'm not sure how far they will spread. One is Mrs Margaret Hunt not sure what the other one is but has beautiful dark purple flowers In July/August. I was looking to fill the gap. Don't want anything to bushy more of a spread (if you know what I mean). Would it be too sunny for the hydrangea. I was also looking at 'trachelospermum asiaticum but read that this could be a 'thug'. I will look at the chocolate vine. The only thing is we 'inherited' Russian vine and took us years to get rid of.
Forgot to mention that I live in Scotland so would have to be hardy.......... Very hardy????????????????
which direction does your wall face, i planted a hydrangea petiaris on a west facing wall 6 weeks ago and it seems happy at the mo ( afternoon sun) but the advice is so conflicting as to weather it will be ok there?
thanks Tetley. Just looking at that one just now. Sanjy67 I honestly have no idea. I'll ask hubby when he comes home! Everything I read seems to be conflicting. Some say good, some say bad. That's the joy of gardening I suppose. Waiting to see what actually happens. (as long as they don't die).
Unless you have masses and masses of room, I'd avoid the Solanum. It can throw up shoots 5m long in a single season .
Sorry hostafan1. I kept meaning to say thanks for your advice. I won't be so rude next time.
aw bless you Daisydoo2, no need for apologies and no rudeness detected . x
