Clematis and Geranium
On a sadder note, I have finally sent my hardy fuchsias off to the great nursery in the sky. I had left them in the hope that they would grow, but no such luck. They had come through the previous winter, but the extreme temperatures for such a long time finally defeated them. I have also lost a grass (used to be called Stipa Arundinacea but is now Amenathele lessoniana or something like that!) and several other plants too. Still, that is the nature of gardening and it does gives me more planting opportunities. However, I think that any replacements will have to be tough, hardy and easy to look after!
