Pairing with Gillian Blades: the President or Vyvyan Pennell
I have a Gillian Blades that is so pretty and I'd like to plant another Clematis next to her so that it can compliment her colors. My Gillian Blades has a pronounced light purple stripe on each flower petal, and I thought a darker purple next to it, would bring that out.
I believe GB is a pruning group 2, so I'd like to stick to having another Group 2, when planting one beside her.
What are your thoughts between The President or Vyvyan Pennell? Does anyone have any opinion either way? Or negative experience with either of these that may make me sway one way or the other?
I'm zone 6 MA.
Thanks for any input to help me make up my mind.
