Clematis Montana (Clematis montana (Clematis))

Yes know its a strange place to plant it, over greenhouse, but actually works quite well, makes one end shady for shade lovers and other end sunny, do prune quite hard after flowering,also gives me chance to clean glass underneath,lol, soon grows back.

Thanks everyone, glad you like it :-) just wish I could remember the variety, has quite reddy leaves and flowers smell strongly of vanilla, Elizabeth rings a bell not sure though, have to put it on gardening questions, Louise may know.
Dawn the white shrub is Choisya Ternata 'Aztec Pearl' (mexican orange blossom) Dawn lovely isn't it, flowers for ages and smells wonderful :-)

I have a Montana Elizabeth Simbad. I agree the Choisya is wonderful - oh no, not another for my wishlist, lol.
