Clematis in Bloom

July 5th, 2018

In the past two years, I’ve added 8 clematis to the garden in efforts add levels to the garden beds/borders. I was lucky to find some at a local discount store last summer for $5 each. They grew nicely last year and are starting to bloom this year. One of my favorites is this burgundy one.

It was labeled as an Everblooming Red clematis. I’m not sure if it has a varietal name or not, but I really like it. The color of the flower make it look like it’s velvet. It’s a wonderful addition to the stock panel arch that graces the front entrance to the main vegetable garden.

What are some of your favorite climbers?

    I like clematis, climbing roses, jasmine, moonflowers, morning glories…

This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
