Live from the Whatcom MG Foundation …
Whether you have one clematis or a dozen, you can always introduce more into your garden!
Whatcom County Master Gardener Marilyn Glenn will talk about the types of clematis based on bloom time and vigor and how they can be used for vertical height and as companion plants.
Selection begins with determining a location – not buying – and then finding a place to plant. Learn about initial planting, cultural requirements, subsequent growth and training, and basic guidelines for pruning.
Leave this talk ready to buy, plant, and prune your next clematis.
Marilyn, along with her husband Steve, care for their four-season ornamental garden in Bellingham. Their garden was featured on a 2017 tour by the Washington Horticultural Society and is an official display garden for the American Daylily Society. Marilyn’s passion for clematis began as a collector and evolved into designing with clematis for vertical height and companion planting.
A brochure, “Clematis for Beginners” by the International Clematis Society, will be referenced throughout the lecture. A copy is available here.
