Purple Clematis


This beautiful Clematis is growing in my sister's yard and it is absolutely gorgeous right now. It is covered in blooms. I couldn't help but take a photo and post it for all to see. This I believe is a hybrid clematis. According to one source I read the clematis is a "social plant" that likes to "mix it up in the garden" which I interpret to mean they like to climb, climb, climb as they vine. It's deep bluish purple blooms just draw you in. It is a rainy, messy, Derby weekend here. Perhaps tomorrow it will lighten up and I can get outside. Enjoy!

  1. What a beauty! I am not having much luck with mine in Denver, and they won't grow at all in the Mts. Glad you shared your Sis'!

  2. PS Carol, Do you know what template you use on Blogger? I'm going to change - I want to post larger photos.

  3. It is more purple than what I usually see. I wonder if it is to do with the soil? Anyway, it is lovely, and this is a very good shot.

    Hope you get out to enjoy the weekend.
