Clematis 'Abilene'

This is just a small selection of the new plants I discovered on my way round the Great Pavilion: if you want more, Matthew Biggs has said a bit more about a few of the ones above plus a few others in an article for the RHS, while Graham Rice has also been forthright and rather justified in his comments about 'new' plants which aren't really new before for the Guardian: thankfully, none of the above are among the culprits...!

me too :D

Actually the one I photographed was the last remaining good flower on some woefully wilted plants (it was Thursday so they'd been there several days). Obviously couldn't cope with the high temperatures & lack of moisture. But my it was lovely....
