Plants Of The Month - August

Rosa 'Perovskia 'Blue Spire'

The silvery grey foliage has a pleasant aroma, which is more noticeable when it is planted next to a path or entrance way. It blends well with a multitude of late summer perennials and provides a prolonged season of interest. Originating from rocky sites, it is tolerant of neglect and will thrive in poorer soils.

Clematis 'Polish Spirit'
The deep purple-blue of this late flowering Clematis have a brooding intensity to them, and works well in many planting schemes. A group 3 Clematis, which should be cut back each year in early spring, it is ideal for clambering through shrubs or small trees as it will never get too cumbersome for its host. It will perform best in a warm, sunny spot. It is one of the last viticellas to flower each year and has a compact form, which makes it ideal for larger pots and containers.
Clematis 'Madame Julia Correvon'

Particularly attractive when allowed to scramble through a climbing rose, this intensely coloured, claret-red Clematis is resistant to Wilt and will flower reliably in sun or part shade. It is a robust and adaptable, late flowering viticella.
