Before we talk about Clematis today, I want to show you something I had been hoping to see here in my GEORGIA GARDENS. The Red Honeysuckle and Yellow Jessamine blooming simultaneously!
The bright yellow Jessamine has since faded but I was so happy to see the two playing together!
I have never had luck with Clematis in the past. Looking back, I have learned that I may have been too quick to assume the vine was dead. Thus, they were more then likely pulled from the ground before they awoke from a Winters Nap. I have learned my lesson. Here you see Ernest Markham. This one is located on the left side of the Garden Swing.
Here you see a Multi Blue mingling with another Honeysuckle vine. These are located on the right side of the Garden Swing.
I love this shade of purple. I hope in time that the Honeysuckle, Multi and Ernest shall meet in the middle and mingle a bit. May have to update these beauties next year.
On the same vine, a bloom a bit older showing a whiter center. Or is this a different vine? Could be, as I planted several last year and I may have lost track of a second one in this area.
Clematis 'Allanah' a hybrid is located in the Semi-Formal Gardens. It climbs a Shepherd's hook to a Birdcage.
After a drought year with me, they all appear to be happy. I hope to add more in time but for now, this is my CLEMATIS COLLECTION, In the Garden...
