Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Clematis are among the more versatile and diverse plants for any garden; few flowers can fill so many garden niches, from specimen plants to dwarf perennials, or container selections to multistory vines. Wherever they are found, their blooms never fail to induce rapture and awe. The carefully chosen clematis can't be equaled when planted in the right situation and pruned in the right way, but horticultural horrors can ensue when beginners (or experts) overreach and force plants where they do not belong. Linda Beutler provides instructions for newcomers and master gardeners alike on plant selection, cultivation, and design, and debunks a few myths along the way. With a distinct nod to the wonderful traditions for growing clematis in the British Isles and Europe, she may be the first author to provide a distinctly American perspective on the subject. Filled with 115 beautiful photographs and the incalculable wisdom of hard-won experience, Gardening with Clematis will be required reading for all adventurous gardeners.

Book News Annotation:

Beutler, a clematis specialist in Portland, Oregon, has written a knowledgeable and enjoyable guide to garden design that features the many varieties of clematis in the garden, with separate chapters--and many photos--on the clematis featured by itself and in companion plantings with other varieties, with roses, woody shrubs, and herbaceous perennials. Tips are given on garden design as a whole and the care, feeding, pruning, and grooming of the plant. An appendix is included on the common clematis groups.
