Clematis napaulensis

Clematis forrestii, Old Man's Beard

Originating from Nepal and parts of China, this rare and unusual clematis has a fascinating growth habit. Clematis napaulensis is cloaked in lush green foliage from autumn to early summer, before shedding its leaves in summer when most plants are in full growth. It's bell-shaped, winter blooms release a delicate perfume that hangs on the cool December air, that form interesting seed heads as spring approaches. This extraordinary, low maintenance Clematis needs little pruning, making it ideal for brightening the dull winter months. Grow it through another deciduous climber to hide its bare stems in summer. Height: 3m (9'). Spread: 1.5m (5'). Pruning group: 1. Supplied in 7cm pots.

Honeysuckle 'Firecracker'

Lonicera

A highly unusual honeysuckle with grey-green leaves which resemble a Eucalyptus! This hardy climbing honeysuckle produces fiery flowers in late spring and early summer, in hot shades of red, orange, yellow and purple. The flowers make a striking contrast to the unusual cup-shaped bracts which form a collar around them, and are followed by bright red berries in the autumn. Unlike many Loniceras, Honeysuckle 'Firecracker' is not prone to mildew and has a neat growth habit, which makes it an ideal climber for small spaces. Stunning grown on walls, fences and in woodland gardens, in sun or partial shade. Height: 2m (6.5'). Spread: 1.5m (5').
