Recipient of the Award of Garden Merit from RHS.

Hundreds upon hundreds of 2½-inch blooms!
An award-winner worthy of the finest garden settings, 'Apple Blossom' is an extraordinary way to welcome spring! With unstoppable fragrance and bloom strength, it is an unforgettable landmark in the garden.

The show begins in mid-spring in most climates, when masses and masses of 2½-inch appleblossom-pink blooms open from rosy-pink buds. Strongly scented of vanilla, they perfume the entire spring garden, remaining for weeks against bronze-tinted new foliage.

The new foliage of this Clematis is interesting too. Although it becomes leathery, tough, and dark green, in spring it opens with bronze tints. This is an evergreen Clematis, so the new leaves appear as the old are passing, for a lovely two-tone effect.

'Apple Blossom' reaches 10 to 15 feet high and 5 to 8 feet wide. It is ideal to train up a trellis or arbor, festoon a fence or outbuilding, or even cover the garden floor. Recipient of the Award of Garden Merit from the RHS, this classic selection is very fast-growing. It prefers a bit of shade in all but the most northern locations. Pruning Group I. Zones 6-9.

Which plants should I grow to repel insects?

Many of the herbs will repel insects. Pennyroyal repels fleas and other insects. Pyrethrum repels moths, flies, ants, mosquitoes, cockroaches, mites, and bedbugs. Mint repels flies, fleas, and ants. Lavender repels flies, silverfish, and fleas. Catnip can repel mosquitoes. Thyme repels insects. Lemon Grass repels mosquitoes. Basil repels flies and mosquitoes. Sage repels a variety of insects. Chrysanthemum, grown for its beautiful flowers and for the extraction of pyrethrin (an organic insecticide), repels flies, beetles, mosquitoes, roaches, lice, and fleas.

Which plants should I grow to repel rabbits and deer?

Planting garlic, onions, chives, lavender, rosemary, and sage around rabbit-susceptible plants will repel rabbits. Deer repellent plants include: lavender, onion, catnip, sage, chives, garlic, spearmint, and thyme. Be sure to strategically place these repellent plants around and in between rabbit and deer-susceptible plants. Also, place some along the property line and especially at key points the rabbits and deer are using as entryways, which can even deter them from coming onto your property.
