Week 20 - our plant of the week is Clematis Ville de Lyon - our first climber and not before time. I could have chosen any of a number of Clematis which are in flower now, but as a large flowered red Ville de Lyon, dating from 1890, is hard to beat. This French varety is one of the worlds most popular and was bred by Francisque Morel from 'Viviand Morel' x C. texensi.   To keep the roots cool I like to grow Clematis through shrubs, in  this case Vitex agnus-castus.

Garden Design Academy plant of the week 40-2013 is Colchicum Waterlily. We grow this bulb amongst shade loving shrubs and herbaceous plants, where it adds colour and interest to the autumn scene. Colchicums are natives of Europe and grow in woodland ditches close to our home. This double flowered form is a real  joy and worth planting in quantity if you can afford it!

Week 30 plant of the week - Hibiscus syriacus. Not to be confused with H. rosa-sinensis, which in northern climes is grown as a houseplant, this is a hardy shrub. Hibiscus thrive best in full sun and can withstand high temperatures and periods of drought. Long lived and trouble-free they can be bought as unnamed seedlings or as named varieties like our English-bred Chiffon, pictured here. Pruning in spring will encourage more impressive flowering.

Lagerstroemia indica is plant of the week 34. A Chinese native now grown throughout the world (where the climate is kind enough). The Crape Myrtle  is a large shrub or small tree with spectacular flowers. We have bought several plants over the years and once they get past that challenging first winter they seem to go from strength to strength.  In 2009 we bought the variety Dynamite which has survived a winter at minus 29 C and tempertures now in the high thirties.
