Rose and the Clematis as Good Companions
John Howells
1870673190
July 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Amazon.com
Author John Howells claims that the climbing rose and the clematis are natural planting companions; both have an urge to reach for the sky and the need for the same growing requirements (good, rich soil and a fair amount of water). The rose makes a softer, more beautiful support for the clematis vine than any trellis, and clematis offers a contrast that brings out the beauty of roses. They share the same kind of enemies, so a treatment program for any pest will benefit both. They can also be grown together in pots or beds. Finally, each comes in an array of colors that complement the other--think of a yellow rose such as Golden Showers or Casino set off by the gorgeous purple of a Victoria clematis. Howells makes his case very convincingly with many gorgeous, full-color photographs.
