Clematis

This purple clematis begins blooming in late April and blooms for several months.  I planted this vine 8 years ago and it’s beauty amazes me each year.

I  planted this Orchid with Red Bars clematis (below) at the same time, but each year it seems to produce less blooms and is not as hardy as the purple clematis.  Yet, I have to admit it has a spectacular flower when it is in bloom.

  1. I grew the purple vine up a branched cedar pole years ago and a bird nested inside the vine at just the right height for us to peek at the nest now and then. They are beautiful. Nice photos.
