The clematis growing over arbours and up walls look so pretty right now while in bloom and I thought I'd share a few of mine.
'Warsaw Nike' and 'Josephine' grow on the north wall of the house. When I first planted 'Josephine' there she didn't come back the second year. So, I planted 'Warsaw Nike' and three years later, look who cozied up to the purple blooms. There must have been a tiny bit of root left in the ground and today, they make a handsome couple.
This is 'Niobe' that is slowly crawling up the iron arbour in the front after being planted a number of years ago.
'Abilene' is a 2013 President's Choice introduction. She took the place of viticella 'Polish Spirit' that succumbed last summer. Sure enough, she just finished blooming and up shot 2 shoots of the viticella clematis. Again, a small portion of root must have still been alive deep in my clay soil.
May people have 'The President' and he grows over the arbour into the back yard along with
the beautiful climbing rose 'New Dawn.
