An Illustrated Encyclopedia of Clematis
picture
Features:-
With more than 800 Clematis species and cultivated varieties from which to choose, gardeners and growers have been inundated with options. Even more frustrating for some has been the absence of a single comprehensive reference with which to identify the numerous cultivars. This new volume, written by distinguished clematis experts and backed by the authority of the British Clematis Society, is the first picture encyclopedia on the genus to encompass the garden-worthy species and hybrids. This long-awaited book is separated into two sections: the first is devoted to the care and cultivation of clematis, while the second provides an A--Z directory of more than 550 plants, from the acclaimed large-flowered forms to the less-familiar shrubby, subshrubby, and herbaceous forms that are beginning to be available. Using everyday language, the authors provide plant descriptions that include information on synonyms, origin, plant habit and height, flowers, pruning group, flowering period, cultural requirements, recommended uses in the garden, and hardiness zones. The text is accompanied by more than 650 magnificent color photos, making this encyclopedia an indispensable reference and guide.

Clematis: The Montanas
picture
Features:-
Winter brings a somber note to the garden. After it, we look to spring to lighten up the vista. The plant, beyond all plants, that does this best is the montana clematis. Huge sweeps of colour, involving thousands of small flowers, climb into trees, cover walls and embellish shrubs. No one montana clematis flowers for long, but a sequence of montanas can flower from April to September. Colour catches the eye first, but as you approach, many of the montanas give an overwhelming fragrance. This particular group of clematis is vigorous, easy to plant and easy to grow. Montanas are free from stem rot (clematis wilt), and pruning is easy. As a bonus, in the autumn, some montanas produce attractive seed heads. The longevity of this clematis is such that it can be considered a friend for life. Written by acknowledged clematis expert John Howells, this book is a book for gardeners.

Gardening with Clematis: Design and Cultivation
picture
Features:-
Clematis are among the more versatile and diverse plants for any garden; few flowers can fill so many garden niches, from specimen plants to dwarf perennials, or container selections to multistory vines. Wherever they are found, their blooms never fail to induce rapture and awe. The carefully chosen clematis can't be equaled when planted in the right situation and pruned in the right way, but horticultural horrors can ensue when beginners (or experts) overreach and force plants where they do not belong. Linda Beutler provides instructions for newcomers and master gardeners alike on plant selection, cultivation, and design, and debunks a few myths along the way. With a distinct nod to the wonderful traditions for growing clematis in the British Isles and Europe, she may be the first author to provide a distinctly American perspective on the subject. Filled with 115 beautiful photographs and the incalculable wisdom of hard-won experience, Gardening with Clematis will be required reading for all adventurous gardeners.
