....and quite well behaved, as clematis go. Just like me then. Also described as ladylike! I give you clematis 'Freda'.
It grows to about 12 feet and the leaves are tinged with bronze. Another favourite is Elizabeth for it's vanilla scent, though it is much more vigorous. It is growing wonderfully on the back (?) of the shed (what were we thinking?)
'Freda' lasts well in a glass
It also looks pretty from inside. I am so thrilled to have bluebells in the wood visible from the study window.
Have you noticed that everything seems to be flowering wonderfully this year?
