Clema­tis spe­cial de­liv­ery

The Daily Telegraph - Saturday - - Front Page -

Ray­mond Evison, the vet­eran clema­tis ex­pert and grower based on Guernsey, who was awarded his 25th gold medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this year, has been hon­oured with a spe­cial is­sue of stamps by the Guernsey Post. Called the Ray­mond Evison 25 Years of Gold is­sue, six of Evison’s clema­tis are fea­tured, five of which were shown at Chelsea this year: Anna Louise; Chelsea; Giselle; Sa­mar­i­tan Jo; and The Count­ess of Wes­sex. The sixth clema­tis, Edda, will be shown at Chelsea 2014.

Ray­mond has also be­come an ex­pert pho­tog­ra­pher over the last 30 years, prompted by the de­sire to show­case his clema­tis in books and cat­a­logues, and it is his im­ages that are shown on the stamps.
