Clematis 'Vyvyan Pennell'


Clematis 'Vyvyan Pennell' (Clematis)

A certain Princess could have worn this instead of 'that' hat, don't you think?

Certainly would have been more appropriate. It's being auctioned off for a children's charity and already has bids up to £20,000. according to the radio this afternoon.

Its a princely colour but I suppose very difficult to reproduce.

I love this one. I had it a couple of years ago, but it didn't like it here. I saw it today at Glendoick....and I resisted the temptation! Its one of my favourites...wonderful!!

She is gorgeous - but she has the unfortunate habit of collapsing with wilt. She does return the following year, though, but I hate it when she drops 'dead'. :-((

Yup, that's what happened to mine, but she didn't return.

New meaning to 'drop dead gorgeous'.........

Indeed! ;-)

By the way, THAT hat....... it went for £81,000

I'm speechless.

I was speechless the first time I saw it!!
Lovely picture of this lovely clem Spritz, I hope mine doesnt get wilt. The angle shows it off beautifully.

Thanks, Tetra. I have my fingers crossed for both of us.

I've already lost 'Mrs Cholmondely' to wilt this year. :-(

I certainly hope mine doesnt..is it catching? I have over 30 clems in my garden at the moment!

A lovely colour. Did you see the variegated clematis on one of the Chelsea Flower Show programs?

25 May, 2011

 

I've been glued to it! There were some lovely plants, weren't there. I-have-no-room! lol.

Wow, Tetra! No, I don't think so - luckily.
