When East Meets West: The Worldwide Legacy of Clematis

by Maurice Horn, Joy Creek Nursery

Images of a variety of new and enticing clematis appear in on line and in printed catalogues each spring accompanied by one-size-fits-all instruction for care and planting.  With more than 300 species in the genus, however, this approach can lead to problems.

Maurice Horn tells the history of the development of clematis in order to give gardeners confidence and an appreciation for the different heritages behind these vines.  His story weaves back and forth between the Orient and the West adding different colors, sizes and shapes of floweres in a loving and, hopefully, inspiring look at a genus whose time has come.
