This NEW collection of 5 of the very best EVERGREEN Hardy Climbing plants consists of the Award Winning Climbing Camellia 'Black Lace', RHS AGM Passiflora 'caerulea', Passiflora 'purple rain', Lonicera 'copper beauty' together with Lonicera 'henryi'.
Camellia 'Black Lace' is a hardy evergreen double flowering RHS AGM plant with impressive dark red velvet flowers set against luxuriant glossy handsome dark glossy green leaves. An elegant upright, bushy patio show-stopper with masses of showy double flowers from early spring over a long period and it can flower as early as December! Fertilise in spring with a good quality azalea food, and mulch with composted leaves or compost and it really is that simple to have the perfect Camellia which will reward you year after year- there is no mystery to growing them! If you mulch your Camellia it will probably live longer than you - they have been known to have a life-span of up to 150 years! In ancient Japan and China the name Camellia symbolised the 'tree of spring' and this plant has long been regarded as a symbol of longevity, love, good fortune and happiness - the perfect choice to uplift you at any time of the gardening year!
Add to this the two of the most stunning Passion Flowers, Passiflora 'caerulea' and 'purple rain' - these easy to grow and trouble free climbers cling with tendrils so won't damage brickwork or fences! Both plants will reward you with masses of blooms in early summer right through to late autumn. The stunning deep blue flowers of 'caerulea' are followed by orange-yellow fruits and the leaves of this Award Winning plant (RHS AGM) are very pretty too, deeply lobed, dark green and glossy. Mix the blues of 'caerulea' with Passiflora 'purple rain' with its showy large flowers some 3-4 inches in diameter in gorgeous purple-mauve and you have the perfect flowering combination. Passion Flower 'Purple Rain' blooms repeatedly and it is evergreen and smooth- textured and hardy tolerating temperatures down to -7C (20F). It has a healthy dark leaf on mature stems which sets the flowers off well. This hardy hybrid is an interesting vine to grow and can be grown inside as a houseplant too, also great in conservatories.
Mix 'black lace', 'caerulea' and 'purple rain' with Lonicera 'copper beauty' for gorgeous scent & Lonicera 'henryi' for masses of blossoms. Adding a scented hardy evergreen to your collection will give your garden oozes of fragrance and 'copper beauty' with her stunning trumpet shaped deep copper yellow flowers performs for you from July all the way through to September. In addition this honeysuckle has lush rich bronze new foliage and stems in spring turning to deep blue- just luscious to look at. Mix with 'henryi' for an abundance of charming blooms which are followed by blue berries which are a real feast for our birds.
