actually enquiring for my sister. she has a fabulous clematis, i hink its nelly moser. it is growing up and over an arch in her garden and flowers in abundance in the summer but then prior to and after flowering, it is very dead looking. is there any climber she could plant with it to compliment it nad that will flower when the clematis isnt in bloom.
thanks

I think a repeat-flowering climbing rose would work well with a clematis, a bit of research will turn up the right variety.

Hi Aine.You might like to check out the following Climbers.

Passiflora manicata.Fast-growing evergreen,Red Flowers with deep purple and white crowns. appears in Summer-Autumn,grows 10-15ft.
Campsis x tagliabuana "Madam Galen.Deciduous,root climber with leavesof 7 or more narrow oval toothed leaflets.Trumpet-shaped orange-pink flowers borne in pendent clusters from late Summer to late Autumn, grows to 30ft.
Jasminum Polyanthum.evergreen,large cluster of fragrant white Flowers are carried from late Summer to Winter.grows to 10ft.

There are many more but to numerous to print here,contrary to popular belief Winter has its share of plants that warms the Cockles of the Heart on cold miserable Days. there are Garden Encyclopedias for beginners which is how I became hooked on Gardening,as I read more the Adrenaline started to pump in, its like a Drug which I'd recommend to anyone.Get stuck-in Aine you will Thank me later. Happy Gardening

Dave.
