are not just spinning spiders ~ clematis x jouiniana 'Praecox' has been occupying centre stage too ~
attracting a bevy of winged creatures on a sunny Sunday afternoon ~
This is a herbaceous clematis which forms vigorous and I mean vigorous ground cover ~
In my garden this in flower most years from July onwards until later this month. It is most easy going, needing no special attention. Fully deserving of its AGM (Award Of Garden Merit) from the Royal Horticultural Society BUT and it is a big but ~ it dies an absolutely disgraceful death!
