"Clematis: The Queen of the Garden"

Anna Leggatt
There are about 300 species of Clematis throughout the world, mainly in the Northern Hemisphere. Size ranges from tiny rock garden gems, herbaceous border stalwarts to large, aggressive vines. Flowering can be any season, depending on species. More and more hybrids are arriving on the market, from large to small flowered, in a dazzling array of colours. Anna will show species in the wild and in the garden. She will explain care and cultivation and give a glimpse of some of the new cultivars.

In Anna's own words: "I am basically a mad gardener, gardening in a comparatively large garden in Toronto (Certified Wildlife Friendly) with lots of shade and mink, deer and groundhogs. Participated in Project Feeder Watch for the last 20 years. I love shrubs, bulbs, rock gardening, wildflowers, Japanese effects, working with stone and changing my garden design. I want to grow vegetables. However, deer and groundhogs would like me to as well."
