Hi, please forgive my considerable ignorance but I have just moved into a new house and inherited several plants that I know not the name of, not being a gardening person. This looks like a very common plant, can someone identify it for me please? thanks




It looks like clematis armandii and if so it will give you wonderfully scented flowers in early spring.

Thanks to you both. Quite a alot of the leaves underneath are brown. Presumably I can just pull them off as they're obviously dead? I really look forward to next spring when it flowers!

yeah just pull them off Ad, some of mine are going brown too.

I have to prune mine quite hard after flowering because it's a strong grower and I have limited space. Even so it's amazing how much it growth it makes through the summer! The flowers make it worthwhile though, although I do get the occasional bad year when it's a disappointment.
