More clematis please!

It's probably quite difficult to see as this garden has so many plants in it but the owner has erected a line of tall posts probably about 10 - 12 feet apart and then looped a chain between them at hand reach height. The plant can then be trained up and round the post and eventually when it reaches the dizzy height of the top of the post it will 'branch out' along the chain. This of course gives the viewer the opportunity to see whatever is behind the line of posts at the same time.

I've planted climbers at regular intervals along my boundary fence and could put in these posts half way between them about 2 feet away from the fence - I can hear a groan from DH as I speak
