Hagley Hybrid?

We bought a clematis a few years ago labelled as Hagley Hybrid. Once it started flowering we were unsure whether it actually was this variety. But nevertheless it is a stunning climber which rambles happily over the trellis in our Rill Garden and always makes its way towards the top pool and on its way makes a diversion to clamber over a standard holly. Its deep pink-red blooms contrast beautifully with the deep green glossy leaves of the holly.

About greenbenchramblings

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.
