Color your landscape with plants! Here, Clematis 'Comtesse de Bouchaud' makes a magnificent partner with pink English roses. To re-create this lovely look we suggest 2 lovely creations of David Austin: Rose 'Gertrude Jekyll' or Rose 'James Galway'.
Climbing roses and clematis are perfect companions. They happily share the same arch or trellis, both reaching for the sun. They have the same natural needs, require the same growing conditions and benefit from the same fertilizers. They often are of similar sizes with the result that neither swamps the other. They also complement one another. While the fragrance is rare in Large Flowered clematis, it is fairly common in roses. When combined, they often look many times more beautiful than on a standalone basis.
