So it was suspected that our clematis would be dormant until next year or it had bloomed already before we bought it since we bought it real late in the gardening season. But lo & behold it began to bud and one finally opened. And we have several more. Each time I check the plant there seems to be more buds and the ‘vines’ are longer and twisted. It’s pretty sweet. I saw this plant growing outside of one of our local greenhouses and knew I had to have it. Then J put up this great trellis and then the magic happened. It grew and grew and flowered.
Isn’t it simply stunning?!
