Story of a clematis


Our clematis amandii is in full flower and has been commented on by neighbours. We were in London last week for a few days and went to a garden centre where a new variety of clematis was for sale – clematis avalanche. We saw it in two different garden centres but decided not to buy in case it got damaged in the case. This new variety, is, like armandii white, everygreen but its leave is smaller and looks like an oak leaf. There is a spot in the garden which would be perfect for it. So decided to check on the internet and were pleased to find a nursery in Italy that is selling it. Ordered it – 23 euros including postage. This morning went to our local “garden centre” il cortile – sells animal food, vases, compost and lots of vegetable plants as gardening here is vegetable oriented. There are also a few shrubs. In the midst of the few shrubs was Clematis avalanche – 17 euros.
