Clematis

I planted two clematis in one of the pergola planters last year. Only one survived and it's presented its first flower -- just one. Perfect flower.

Some day I want another regular, everyday clematis -- the ones with the small purple flowers, like grandma had.

Comments

Love the flower - but the name reminds me of an STD. "Oh I love you Benny, but I have a bad case of clematis!"

Clematis jackmanii is still widely available and is probably the same or very similar to your grandmother's. I used to have one and it bloomed very heavily with purple flowers. I absolutely loved it. If you just happen to wander into a garden center you may find one and it's likely to be discounted this late into the summer.

I love the color of your geranium!

Beautiful flower!! :)
