  Campsis

Clematis

Dactylicapnos macrocapnos (Klim Dicentra)

This lovely hardy perennial Himalayan climber flowers from August until the first frosts when it dies to the ground. It will grow happily in half shade or sun and scrambles 4m along and up a trellis with us but, from experience, it could overwhelm smaller shrubs with it’s dense and vigorous growth. In a harsh winter, protecting the root is advisable. It is fairly easy to find or even grow from seed and there is no shortage of information on the Internet. Taxonomists started to complicate matters for gardeners when they decided not to use the familiar “Dicentra” nomenclature and this is compounded by debates over the actual identity of plants. Thankfully there is an article from Touchwood Plants & Seeds which succinctly reviews the whole thing : http://www.touchwoodplants.co.uk/dicentra%20article.htm
