With their sumptuous colours and generous display of flowers, clematis are unrivaled among climbing (and sometimes shrubby) plants. Whether you favor the spectacular large-flowered hybrids or the elegant small-flowered hybrids and species, you'll learn the best plants for your garden along with expert advice on design, propagation, and maintenance – including clear instructions on the often confusing subject of pruning.
The Plant Lover's Guides offer a rich source of information on both new and classic garden plants. Written by enthusiastic experts, they recommend the best varieties for different situations, inspire ideas for new plant combinations, and are packed with resources for the home gardener. These gorgeous guides celebrate the beauty of each plant and form a comprehensive library that every plant lover will want to own.
