Overlapping – A new Sale list

Canada 150 Celebration Sale will end shortly. As the saying goes, with every end there is a new beginning.

A new Sale category for the month of February is in the works; it will include some of the previous species, and not only. Various other species, either collected in slightly larger quantities, or down to 1 pck., will be added to the list; plus, a few Clematis species.

For those interested to take advantage  – for a couple of days until I manage the end/new beginning, the two sale lists will overlap ;)

Featured for this post is the newly added Clematis ‘Guernsey Cream’
This is a most beautiful Clematis hybrid with large light yellow flowers, opening to white cream/with a middle green band. The undisclosed parentage it’s presumed to be some natural light yellow strain of Clematis patens (seen in a few other cultivars of Japanese origin, like Wada’s Primrose).

I have to emphasize that this being a hybrid it will not come true from seeds! However, the possibility of obtaining something very close to it, or perhaps even better, is tantalizing!

In the picture below in my former tiny garden, growing/scrambling on Fagus sylvatica ‘Atropurpurea’; the large flowers will open just at the peak colour of the Fagus. An unforgettable sight!

      It is very beautiful indeed Gill and haven’t seen it offered in the past years. The plant happily resides now in a friend garden and I plan
      to take cuttings for myself this summer. But, short story long, surely I do post to UK, but not for friends ;) :) I’ll put some aside for you, actually
      there aren’t too many seeds and already packed a couple pck.
