Flower of the Day – Clematis

Every May she wakes up in the garden, climbing, determined and exuberant, making everything beautiful in her path.

  1. When I llived close to the river in London, from 1985-1997, I had a tiny patio garden, only 14 feet square. I had five different varieties of Clematis growing on trellis fixed to the fencing. One of my favourites.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      • In the brick built beds, I grew Fuschsias, and Hostas. I only had three varieties of plant in the whole garden. πŸ™‚

      • Three wonderful choices! I just bought some Fuchsia starts and will plant them in one of my flower boxes today. And my Hostas are just starting to come up!

      • I’ve grown hostas for years but never had a snail problem.. Now slugs are another matter, they thrive here, but prefer vegetables!

  2. Susanne,
    Quite stunning to see the clematis over the trees like that. Nice garden design. I usually see it bloomed in summer not spring. Is it long blooming for you? I have a climbing rose growing up thru our heavenly bamboo. πŸ™‚Anne

    • Thanks Anne! I planted this clematis many years ago and it has been so faithful to spread and grow, making everything beautiful in its path! I believe the variety is Montana. Starts budding in April and blooms during the month of May. I bet your climbing rose is beautiful too!

    • Thanks John! This clematis is so vibrant and climbs everywhere in the spring, making everything beautiful in its path!

      • I’ve got 8 Calla Lillies now in my oversized pot…why did they bloom now and not for the past year? Who knows, a happy accident!

  3. I miss the clematis we had that trailed all along our eastern fence. Thanks for letting me enjoy yours.
