The  Jackmanni clematis was massive as it wound around a birdhouse. Plant in full sun but keep the roots in shade as they like to stay cool. Pruning after flowering will  allow the clematis to rebloom into the fall.

Calamagrostis acutiflora  Karl Foerster's Feather Reed Grass  Ht. 36-49" and upwards of 60" when it flowers in June. Works well when planted as specimen grass or in mass plantings.  Provides winter interest as it stays upright. "Overdam variegated" is also my other favorite in the reed grass variety.  Both are deer resistant and can take drought and moist conditions.
