Plant combinations

I just thought I would share a couple of lovely plant combinations I noticed on my daily wander round the garden.  Above is a lovely trio of climbing rose 'New Dawn', Clematis 'Perle D'Azur' (flowering really well this year, not sure why, but very nice anyway) and Jasmine 'Clotted Cream'.  The jasmine and rose also have the added benefit of fragrance too.

Here is Hydrangea arborescens 'Annabelle' with Clematis 'Arabella' to the left and Clematis 'Etoile Violette' on the trellis at the back.  The Hydrangea has gone completely mad this year and has a huge number of flowers and is in danger of taking over the garden.  It is a beautiful plant though, so I just let it grow where it wants to.


  1. The pictures of your garden are so, so beautiful, I came across them googling pictures for clotted cream jasmines. Thank you for sharing, I love gardening and I am always looking for inspiration and ideas. x

  2. Dear Marion
    Thank you so much for your lovely comment. I love gardening too, as you might just be able to tell from the way it has taken over my blog recently! I only have a small garden but I do love to cram it full with colour. Often, I can't take any credit for the planting combinations as Mother Nature seems to do a much better job than I do. I'm really pleaed that you like the photos.
    Best wishes

  3. Note to the above - it should say 'pleased' not pleaed!
