Anyone got a Nepaulese Clematis? Before I splash the cash I'd like to know how hardy it is and suggestions for a deciduous climber to compliment it would be nice too.
It's one of those summer dormant plants which always seems a bit odd to me.
Logan says its not fully hardy, that plus the summer dormancy would put me off.
Unless it was very cheap
Which it won't be
It's about a tenner nut.
I should have updated this thread to say that I found a discussion about it at the British Clematis Society's forum that told me all I wanted to know:
It was the winter flowering and scent that attracted me.
Grow it through a summer flowering climber to disguise the dormant stage and enjoy the winter display when the summer climber is dormant. ????
