Karensusan63's Garden

Clematis Abilene begins the list of clematis. I have had something of an obsession with them. I would have removed them, but tbh, they never like being moved. The good news is that the only ones left are easy to care for. You simply cut them right down to about 6" above the ground in late winter (March). Clematis do not have to be pruned at all. We do it to keep them compact and tidy, so don't worry if you don't have time to do it.

This one has Pink flowers from May to October. Grows to 1.2m. And clambers through the small magnolia in the border in front of the gravel seating area.
