Hydrangea paniculata Little Lime ('Jane') (PBR) - It may be half the size of its sibling 'Limelight', but this fab new hydrangea still packs pretty good punch. It has strong stems that support the weight of the conical, lime green flowers, which fade to cream and then pink as the season progresses. Grate where space is limited, but you want a hard-working and colourful plant, it can also be grown in large pots if kept well watered.
Clematis armandii ‘Apple Blossom’ is a very special and rich flowering clematis with fragrant, pinkish-white blooms that look a little like apple blossom. This variety retains its leathery leaves over the winter too. The darker flower petals fade to white the older they get. Also suitable for a patio planter.
