When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, peonies, philadelphus...

Finally! Finally! 💛💚💛 This has been hiding in the hedge for years and finally, this year, I managed to stop him from chopping it down before it had even thought about flowering. It is rewarding my diligence - even if he doesn’t 😉😂

Sometimes you just have to be patient... I planted this in the hedge over 2 years ago and finally it has managed to avoid being trimmed long enough to produce a flower 😃😊 #clematis-tangutica #clematis-BillMackenzie

I cut mine to the ground every year and it covers the shed every year! It’s like a triffid!

Mine has never had the chance, having been cut down regularly before it has had a chance to grow 🙄 This year I put a bench in front as no labelling or canes had helped... 😂 Hopefully there will be no stopping it now 🤞 @joanboston

Hi Suzie, Thanks, all good here under the circumstances. I suppose it is an unusual colour for a clematis but now you’ve seen this you will see them everywhere! The seed heads are gorgeous too @jadojado29

I’ve planted this on the sunny side of a native hedge. I’m hoping it won’t get inadvertently chopped down and will eventually grow through it 💛💚💛
