Hi nadyuska, I'm sorry that I don't have a translation for your question and French is my second language rather than Spanish. However I THINK you may be asking what the plant is in the containers - it is boxwood (Buxus).

emagenshn, are there any dwarf, narrow conifers that would work for you? You'd need to check climate zones with a local nursery.

Masterworks - to avoid confusion I think it is necessary to point out that there are two reasons clematis wilt. 1. A fungal infection which can be a problem on larger flowered varieties and usually called 'clematis wilt' and 2. Environmental stress which can be triggered as you suggest. This article is helpful http://apps.rhs.org.uk/advicesearch/profile.aspx?PID=125

mamajo - no rose should be that much work! I'd toss it and start again but replace the soil under and around it with fresh soil. Time to shop!

flopshot - the most common reason for non-blooming clematis is too much shade. Although their roots need to be shaded the buds need plenty of sun. Also incorrect pruning can result in lack of flowers

Diane G it is better to grow the clematis on the rose, not the other way around. If your clematis is already in place can you add the rose to one side?

Francesca this just shows that understanding local conditions is important. It also shows that while some may consider ripping up (rather than digging) excess plants isn't an issue, others would call it high maintenance.

We had ajuga in our L.A. suburb yard for years & years. It was the only ground cover that would grow in poor soil which was mostly clay and didn't hold moisture. That was years ago. Now I am in the San Fernando Valley and the nurseries don't stock it as it is considered too ordinary. Too bad because its leaves are pretty & the color spike is lovely!

Ahhhh, I don't think I've ever enjoyed spring weather more. We're having a warm and dry April in the Seattle area after the wettest March on record. I went out and moved some landscape plants and put in some veggies. Our black dog lay in the sun.

Most lantana are annuals for us but some are hardy in zone 8. Typically 9-11 where they become a shrub. They need really well drained soil too

We had a view on our neighbor's house that we wanted to hide, so we found this idea of a 'red sculpture'. These painted beams are attached to a zen mineral terrace. We removed an old swimming pool, filled the hole, cemented it and built a veranda and this terrace on this spot. This terrace is lovely all year.

My favorite childhood memory is from one summer at the lake. My family was staying at our cottage and one day, my father, who liked to wander in the woods, came back so exited. Everyone else was too busy doing their own thing, but me, as in character, was simply splashing my feet in the lake - sitting on the dock. I followed my dad, and he brought me to a place that was formerly swamp. Large trees, but no underbrush or plants--- simply a padded carpet of moss under the tree canopy. It was so beautiful, I can still see it to this day. I tried to find the moss room years after as an adult, but it wasn't there. It must have been a result of the climate conditions for that year, I'll never forget it though- it still exists vividly in my memories.
