No sign of blooms on mine yet........

This has to be the strongest growing clematis i have here.
Is yours always late to flower, Alice, i fancy this one is earlier flowering this year.

Ooo this is pretty, rampant sounds good to me, have to look out for this one.

Simbad, it 'is' a pretty one, lovely frilly ruffles on it :-)))

I must look at mine - it has buds, but no flowers as yet. It was new this year, though. :-/

And, it's a really, really good performer.
I have this in a south facing border where the only shade for its roots is the nearby foliage and it romps away !!!

I hope mine does once it's established! It's facing west-ish.

I have this one, new this year....but its 'lost' underneath a C. 'multiblue' which 'took off' this year...wonder if it will survive

17 Jul, 2010

 

I do hope so!

It looks really health doesn't it....not a sign of the dreaded mildew, although that usually appears on mine in September...yuck! Lovely photo :)

22 Jul, 2010

 

I do hope mine doesn't succumb to mildew! What with Zepherine and now this - Yikes!

22 Jul, 2010

 

I know, I know, lol...Angus must be a very mildewy county!!

22 Jul, 2010

 

Is it the damp, do you think?

22 Jul, 2010

 

It gets quite damp in the autumn, very quickly, and I think that's when everything gets mildewy.

22 Jul, 2010

 

Not a lot you can do about that, apart from move!

22 Jul, 2010

 

yup! :)

22 Jul, 2010

 

It's lovely down here....Somerset is a beautiful County.......;-)

22 Jul, 2010

 

LOL!!! I believe you!!...except for the hose pipe bans of course!

22 Jul, 2010

 

Oooohhhhh nooooooo - we don't get those - that's the SE. No snow here, either - well, one inch this year...

22 Jul, 2010

 

oh, give over, you're making me jealous!! It's like angus, but warmer then!!

22 Jul, 2010

 

Yesssssssss.........:-))))

22 Jul, 2010

 

Yes, there are rarely hosepipe bans here and as Spritz said very rarely see snow either :-))))
The only things i've had mildewed this year were my scabious and taller monardas (but not the shorter ones) so they've been dug out and replaced .... the asters look like they're on their way too :-(((

23 Jul, 2010

 

My Phlox sometimes get mildewed in autumn, after they've flowered - so I cut them back.

Not your new Aster, I hope, Louise! :-(

23 Jul, 2010

 

Not that one !!!
I was looking at it yesterday and marvelling at how it hadn't succumbed yet :-/

23 Jul, 2010

 

I hope it doesn't - it's not prone to mildew.

23 Jul, 2010

 

What a gorgeous colour, I could certainly find room for this one!
