There is always room for just one more clematis they can be hidden in the hedge or fence and then when they flower what a wonderful sight. Above is Pink Fantasy.

and even closer. It benefits by being in a bit of shade so that the sun doesn't bleach out the stripes.
This is such a treat I bought this many years ago and managed to take a cutting before the original plant died. It has taken many years to develop but this year there have been several flowers. These are exposed to lots of sun and so the petals are bleached. I think it is William Kennett.
Wadas Primrose a very early flowering large clematis.
Mrs N Thompson a real delight especially in a dark corner.
On the sunnier side of the arch is Clematis Rebecca performing very well.

Nelly Moser from a cutting fills a space on the fence.

Belle of Woking
Belle of Woking is quite a vigorous clematis.
Niobe rather hidden this year but such a lovely deep colour.
Somewhere to enjoy several of my clematis not just those behind the seat.
Ville de Lyon which I thought I'd lost by accidentally pruning too hard, so a welcome treat to see it this year.
Just some of the joys of June.
