Hi guys

I am fairly new to gardening and am redesigning a border-but recently one plant that I was planning to get rid of has bloomed and the flowers attract hundreds of bees.anyone know what this is? 

Since it seems very beneficial I will keep it! 

Many thanks

Lax

    Its a woody shrub, before they open the flower hang like bells, and the bees love it. Its approx 1m high, and the same in width

    It looks from the flowers like a clematis, I cannot remember the variety.

  • i have one myself, but I hadn't noticed that the bees like it, although it is still quite small. Mine has just started flowering so I will keep an eye on it.
