This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: ... (Clematis Vitalba), you _can carry the bloomingtill the latter part of August. Then with the Clematis Punzk-ulufa, it may be continued till the end of September. Then there are the large-flowered sections of Clematis, CIrm111t1'1s Jae/rman-ni and Cle1na..ti.s' Hem-ii. These are more difficult to grow, but when once established, they will well repay the trouble. Next in the list I would recommend plants of the honeysuckle class. They have fine flowers, good foliage, and are not troubled with insects. The Scarlet Trumpet honeysuckle will bloom all summer on account of flowers coming on the new growth, if one keeps the vine growing thriftily. The English Honeysuckle is another desirable variety, but it stops blooming in a short time. The flower buds of this variety will be killed in winter unless it is protected. A variety that is largely grown in Vestern Ontario and in the States is the Japanese Honeysuckle. This is quite attractive, has a yellowish flower and blooms in great profusion for a long period. It is not hardy in Eastern Ontario, and I would not advise it where the temperature falls to 20 degrees below zero. Next on my list comes the climbing roses. Some would put these at the top, but they have one or two objections. First, they are very much troubled with insects, and require much attention; second, their foliage is not always attractive. If one can grow them in combination with something else, or place them so that their foliage will not be prominent, they can be grown to good effect. I think the best place is at the side of a house or a little way from the front entrance; you get the eifect of the bloom better in that way, and when the foliage begins to fall it is not so noticeable. The very best of the roses is more
