This is one Clematis that everyone knows. It can be seen everywhere at this time of year, on walls, hedgrows, fences, in fact anywhere. 

Mine is growing along the wall between me and my neighbour. I have it trained to grow right down along the wall. I'm going to buy another one and place it on the opposite  wall and hopefully in a few years it will take off down that wall and maybe eventually meet in the middle.  

I love it.

That's a gorgeous Clematis, and one I've always wanted. But I think maybe a second one might prove to be a bit rampant. The name 'montana' suggests mountainous. It might be difficult to keep in check after a few years.

Ah there plenty of walls here for Jacinta plus I can always cut it back. It's taken almost 5 years to get this far! :)

Nice idea Jackie, you can certainly rely on that Clematis for travelling!  It looks splendid against your green wall.
