A Pretty Duo with Clematis and Lilies

Plant combinations, Summer Borders


Clematis and Lilies can be perfect companions. They both prefer having their 'heads in the sun and their feet in the shade'. Additionally, most garden lilies need a low-growing plant to hide their bare flower stems.

In this garden border, the pale lavender-blue flowers of Clematis 'Emilia Plater' are beautifully combined with the strongly recurved, dark crimson flowers of Lilium 'Black Beauty'. The two plants are extraordinarily vigorous and floriferous. Lilium 'Black Beauty' can produce up to 50 and 150 flowers per stem on well established plants!

When combined, these Viticella clematis and orienpet lily look many times more beautiful than on a standalone basis.
