This is a collection of 4 EASY TO GROW Climbing Plants that will reward you year after year and have the added advantage of being able to be planted in ANY POSITION. This collection comprises of - the exciting NEW Climbing Hydrangea 'Seemanii', the NEW GENERATION Lonicera 'Darts World', the WINTER HARDY Jasmine 'Clotted Cream', and the excellent performing EVERGREEN Clematis 'Freckles'.
Hydrangea 'Seemanii' is a rare and HARDY EVERGREEN climbing plant has been introduced from Mexico and is becoming known as the Mexican Climbing Hydrangea. The foliage is self clinging and has copper tones maturing to dark green making it ideal for covering sheds, walls, fences and screening from unsightly objects and neighbours!
The flowers also are quite extraordinary as the buds are the size of duck eggs opening to beautiful scented flowers during the summer.
The second plant in our Collection is a NEW introduction, 'Darts World', which is a particularly HARDY EVERGREEN climber with a bushy spreading habit, has dark green leaves and very fragrant magenta-red flushed flowers that turn yellow. The flowers are carried in pairs from spring through to late summer. Grows in any well-drained soil or compost if growing in a patio container and train according to the space available.
Jasmine 'Clotted Cream' is the third plant in our Collection and also is a HARDY perennial climber launched at the Chelsea Flower Show, where it received rave reviews. Jasmine 'Clotted Cream' is a twining EVERGREEN climber with masses of rich cream-coloured, highly exquisitely scented flowers over a long period in summer through to early autumn. The flowers on this Jasmine are larger and more fragrant than on the much loved common Jasmine. An absolute delight grown through old tree stumps and hedges, or covering a pergola, fence or maybe a garden shed. Jasmine 'Clotted Cream' grows up to 6 feet in height. To best appreciate the fragrant flowers, choose a position close to a well used door or pathway. In a small garden why not try planting in a pot and train up an obelisk or small trellis.
The fourth plant in our Collection
is an absolute gem of a Clematis, 'Freckles' giving winter interest as it flowers through the winter season when the garden needs an injection of colour. This attractive, vigorous cultivar was raised by (I hope he doesn't mind the accolade!) the 'Clematis Supremo' Raymond Evison, from wild seed collected in the Balearic Islands, and named after one of his daughters whose nickname is Freckles. It has scented single, nodding, creamy pink flowers with reddish maroon speckling on the insides of the tepals.
The RHS Floral Committee awarded Clematis 'Freckles' an Award of Garden Merit and described it as:"Large evergreen climber with neat, finely-cut leaves tinged bronze in winter. Flowers 5 cm wide, pale yellow heavily speckled with maroon within. Good silky seed-heads." A good source of nectar for the early bumble bees!
